Split libglade package into non-gnome dependant part
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:01 EDT
Libglade consists of more than one library. One is called libglade.so.0 and
is not gnome-dependant. Another is libglade-gnome.so.0 and depends on
gnome-libs et. al.
This makes the whole package depend on gnome-libs. Although it will work to
install the package with --nodeps and use libglade.so.0, this is not a good
Other distributions have split this package, so as to not require
gnome-libs to use libglade for a gtk+ only application.
In GNOME 2 library packages (alpha versions at
ftp://people.redhat.com/hp/gnomehide), libglade is already split in this way,
I don't think it's worth doing for libglade stable. We require gnome-libs for
the base install with X anyway, pretty much.
