Description of problem:
As of F12, paprefs requires gnome-packagekit, and that in turn
requires six PackageKit* packages, libarchive, and preupgrade .
All that for a PulseAudio config tool???
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Examination of 'rpm -qRp paprefs-0.9.9-1.git20090825.fc12.i686.rpm',
then examination of 'rpm -qRp gnome-packagekit-2.27.5-2.fc12.i686.rpm'.
F12 paprefs requires the following packages, which were not required by
the F11 version:
. . PackageKit-glib
. . . libarchive
. . PackageKit-gtk-module
. . PackageKit-yum
. . PackageKit-yum-plugin
. . preupgrade
A less bloated set of dependencies, as was the case in F11.
If these bloated dependencies can't be eliminated, then at least the
word "simple" should be removed from the paprefs description.
Yes, paprefs can now install the module packages for you on demand. That's why it depends on pkgkit,
