Description Jindrich Novy 2010-08-18 14:10:28 UTC
Description of problem:
jadetex package contains the following %post scriptlet dependency:
Requires(post): policycoreutils

This dependency is not needed and causes dependency bloat because 63k jadetex package pulls in additional 2M of dependencies (policycoreutils and checkpolicy as its dependency) even on a system without SELinux enabled.

Correct SELinux context restoration could be made only when SELinux is installed/enabled on a system. Likely in a similar way how it is done in TeX Live packages:

%post
if [ -x /usr/sbin/selinuxenabled ] && /usr/sbin/selinuxenabled; then
  [ -x /sbin/restorecon ] && /sbin/restorecon -R %{_texmf_var}/
fi
:


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
jadetex-3.13-8.fc15

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -q --requires jadetex | grep policycoreutils | wc -l
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
1

Expected results:
0

Thanks for filling the bug, as discussed via IRC, I'll remove the dependency in next jadetex rawhide build.
