Description Michael McLagan 2002-05-28 10:20:10 EDT
Description of Problem:
passwd requires Gnome libraries

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

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to install passwd RPM without libg, etc.

Actual Results:
RPM refuses to install.  Ignoring dependancies leaves a passwd that
will not run.

Expected Results:
Passwd is a text program and should not require graphical libraries to
install or run

Additional Information:
Comment 1 Jindrich Novy 2004-10-31 14:25:34 EST
Michael, glib is not a graphical library at all. It is used frequently
by GTK+ and GDK, but it's not related very much to graphics. It
contains very useful functions not present in glibc such as g_malloc,
g_strdup, etc. and is also used heavily by some other pure text
oriented applications such as mc.
