Description of problem:
Several packages from Supplementary require packages from the optional repository which according to dgregor is a bug. As those packages are proprietary ones and we can't do anything to them (or the deps are indeed correct) I'm requesting that libXp, libXmu and mozilla-filesystem packages be moved to the base repository.
The requires are:
java-1.6.0-ibm-184.108.40.206-1jpp.1.el6.x86_64 Requires: libXp.so.6()(64bit)
java-1.5.0-ibm-220.127.116.11.1-1jpp.1.el6.x86_64 Requires: libXmu.so.6()(64bit)
java-1.5.0-ibm-18.104.22.168.1-1jpp.1.el6.x86_64 Requires: libXp.so.6()(64bit)
java-1.6.0-ibm-plugin-22.214.171.124-1jpp.1.el6.x86_64 Requires: /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to install all supplementary packages with the optional repository disabled.
1) something in base should be requiring mozilla-filesystem. CC'ing caillon.
2) ancient crufty no-one-should-use X libs added as optional packages in legacy-x.
mozilla-filesystem is required by xulrunner (which is in turn required by firefox). thunderbird and nspluginwrapper also pull it in
So it is, and at least as of snapshot 4, it's in the main tree.
for the WebServer variant in snap #5 all of these packages are in the optional repository. Same goes for few more variants. On all of these variants installing Supplementary packages will fail with broken dependencies if they don't have the optional repository enabled. Moving back to ASSIGNED.
What's the desired behavior here? Should all variants have those packages in the base repo? If not those that have them in optional/ should be documented.
Web server does not have GUI groups, by design.
This is still an issue with latest Supplementary )0618.) for WebServer.
The same for RHEL6.0-Supplementary-20100618.0/6/ComputeNode/x86_64
