Description Rex Dieter 2010-06-18 14:08:23 UTC
As notification-daemon is only ~100k, it's not a big deal, but we did go through the effort of making it
Provides: desktop-notification-daemon
and now a non-trivial amount of apps are ending up with a direct dependency on notification-daemon direction through libgnome:

*lots of stuff* -> libgnome -> fedora-gnome-theme -> notification-daemon-engine-slider -> notification-daemon

Suggestions off the top of my head on how to fix this include:
* notification-daemon should require the default theme.
* make notification-daemon-engine-slider not depend on notification-daemon

> * notification-daemon should require the default theme.

To be clear: notification-daemon should require notification-daemon-engine-slider, not fedora-gnome-theme.

That's the wrong solution, it still pulls in an unwanted and completely unneeded package onto the KDE spin.

Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2010-07-12 05:45:10 UTC
notification-daemon-engine-slider has been merged into notification-daemon on June 28. So I just removed the now redundant Requires: notification-daemon-engine-slider from fedora-gnome-theme.
