Description of problem:
net-snmp requires db2, which for some bizarre reason is now in gnome-libs.
db2 should really be separate...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install bare rh8, remove X and gnome totally (eg headless server)
2. try installing net-snmp.
3. scream in utter frustration.
Actual Results: net-snmp should not require gnome-libs.
Expected Results: db2 should be packaged separately.
whoever made the decision to put db2 into gnome-libs should be beaten to death
with a wet noodle.
Fixed in latest packages (net-snmp-5.0.8-2 and newer)
Read ya, Phil
This bug is "alive" again in net-snmp-5.0.9-2.80.1.i386.rpm
