kdebase-workspace requires gpsd
Last modified: 2011-03-17 08:02:25 EDT
Description of problem:
kdebase-workspace requires gpsd (libgps.so.19). I don't think this makes sense as only very few people have a GPS device. plasma-geolocation-gps or all geolocation plasmas should go into package a separate package in KDE 4.6.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
As you specified in your report, this is not a new dependency in 4.6, so I don't think this should block the 4.6 update. I'm taking it off the kde-4.6 tracker.
Do as you like. I agree it's not a blocker for the 4.6 update, but I think this is a good time to fix this.
Let's decide at the KDE SIG meeting on Tuesday what to do about this.
Looks like these would need to be split out to accomplish this:
That said, the fact that gpsd is < 1mb in size, not sure if the effort here is worth the minimal savings and increased complexity from another subpkg.
the size pf gpsp is minimal < 1mb, i don't think it's worth splitting it in subpackage.
