Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 626946
don't require perl
Last modified: 2013-04-30 19:47:24 EDT
To make the F14 desktop spin fit on a cd, we are working to get perl off the image. We just got rid of the last perl dep in syslinux, and now tigervnc-server is pulling in a new one.
If we can't get rid of it, we'll have to kick tigervnc-server off the desktop spin, I'm afraid.
Of course, anaconda pulling it in makes that a little harder to do, grr.
So, perl is the 3rd largest package on the live cd, and it is getting pulled in solely for /usr/bin/vncserver.
In my opinion the best solution is to create new subpkg and ship only Xvnc, vncpasswd and vncconfig there. tigervnc-server will Requires: <this_new_subpkg> so everything should be same for common users.
And then anaconda will be made to require only that new tigervnc-server-barebones package ? Sounds fine to me.
It looks like there is a test build of this being put together this morning.
Is there a bug to request the change to anaconda?
tigervnc-1.0.90-0.19.20100813svn4123.fc14 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 14.
