Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 66866
Ethereal will erroneously not install without gtk+
Last modified: 2015-03-04 20:10:45 EST
Description of Problem:
The ethereal-0.9.4-0.7.3.0.i386.rpm package will not install on a system that
lacks the gtk+ package. Note that I am *not* refering to the graphical
ethereal-gnome package, but to the text mode package.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -ivh --test ethereal-0.9.4-0.7.3.0.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
gtk+ >= 1.2 is needed by ethereal-0.9.4-0.7.3.0
rpm -qi -p ethereal-0.9.4-0.7.3.0.i386.rpm
and read this:
This package lays base for libpcap, a packet capture and filtering
library, contains command-line utilities, and contains plugins and
documentation for ethereal. A graphical user interface is packaged
separately to GTK+ package.
Looks to me like the gtk+ requirement should be exclusive to ethereal-gnome.
Fixed in latest rawhide version (0.9.4-2).
Read ya, Phil
