Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 74873
dynamic rpm dependency handling
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:47:00 EDT
Description of Problem:
DSL, ISDN or LAN users don't need wvdial but they are forced to
install it for redhat-config-network.
neat should check for wvdial at runtime and pop up a window with a
message that wvdial is needed when the user tries to configure a
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
We should avoid to add unneccessary dependencies, we already have way
too many of them.
the trouble unexperienced users get in is worse than this dependency ...
Hmmm, neat is supposed to configure DSL, but has no requirement on
rp-pppoe. Do you think unexperienced users will find the solution
for this ?
I still think that askng the user to insert the CD and then
install the wvdial package would be the correct way here ;-)
at least this dependency should go for the mainframe port
