Description Steve Snyder 2002-06-18 14:24:07 UTC
Description of Problem:

The procps-X11-2.0.7-12 package is installed (by RHL v7.3 installer) on a
text-only system.  The reason appears to be that procps-X11 is not built with a
requirement that X11 be present.

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


How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RedHat Linux v7.3 without any XFree86 support 
2. Note that procps-X11-2.0.7-12 is installed 

Actual Results:

procps-X11-2.0.7-12 is installed

Expected Results:

The proc-X11 package should require XFree86.

Additional Information:
# rpm -q --requires procps-X11
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1

Comment 1 Alexander Larsson 2002-07-01 14:15:48 UTC
I'm not sure what to do here. procps-X11 only contains the XConsole shell
script, and all that does it start xconsole, which is in the XFree86 package.
Pretty worthless package.

Since the package is only 213 bytes and a change will need some installer and
upgrade testing i'm inclined to not care, so i'm closing this NOTABUG.

Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 2002-07-12 13:42:59 UTC
It's not clear to me that there's still any need to ship the procps-X11
package at all in Limbo.  Perhaps we should just remove it; it was there
only for backwards compatibility years ago.
