I don't want to have avahi daemon on my system, so I type "yum erase avahi".
I get this:
Removing for dependencies:
This is obviously wrong. I don't have to have avahi installed in order to use gedit!
Ok, let's see where this unwanted dep crept in:
# rpmdep -dot gedit.dot gedit
# grep avahi gedit.dot
cups_libs -> avahi_libs;
gvfs -> avahi_glib;
avahi_glib -> avahi; <=== probably wrong?
avahi -> libdaemon;
My guess would be that avahi_glib should not be pulling in avahi package.
Please do something so that I can uninstall avahi without nuking my system.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.
(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
