Description Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-02-11 09:10:17 EST
Description of Problem:
Buidling xchat without linking in 100 gnome libs doesn't reduce its
functionality, but makes it much less bloated. (Try the non-gnome version for
yourself, you won't notice a difference).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -e gnome-libs
2. rpm -i xchat-1.8.7-5.i386.rpm

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2002-02-11 09:18:57 EST
Ok, I'll build it without GNOME support some time and see what all is
different.  If it is unnoticeable, possibly I'll toss it in rawhide.
Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2002-03-26 16:57:24 EST
xchat 1.8.8-3 in rawhide is now built with GNOME support disabled.
It appears that there should not be any major loss of functionality.
GNOME support was for sound and GNOME panel support only, and a crash
dialog also.  None of which I consider mission critical.  I'll leave it
disabled unless there becomes some compelling reason to re-enable it.

And keybindings, and pixmaps on buttons and several other things that I've seen
people complain about not being present in the past 24 hours now that Skipjack 2
has gone out.
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2002-04-08 17:20:47 EDT
Due to many comments, requests, flames received in email, IRC, and in
bugzilla, I've re-enabled GNOME support in xchat.  GNOME support provides
the pixmap'd buttons, as well as the pulldown menus at the top, key
bindings and various other features users have requested be re-enabled.

Bug 62849 is related.
