Description James Martin 2003-05-02 15:00:10 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
The spec file for redhat-config-network-1.0.4-0.AS21.1 now requires gnome-core
for some of the .so files it builds. This is also why it has changed from a
noarch package to a i386 package.  It now adds the following depedencies to
redhat-config-network (which didn't exist before).


Please make something similar like redhat-config-printer-tui for network
interfaces--- redhat-config-network-tui would be nice.. Netconfig is not
adequate-- it does not retreive previous settings and is not a very good
interface.  It seems extreme to require those 14 packages to configure my
network interface with a decent tool.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Try up2dating redhat-config-network without have Gnome installed.

Additional info:

I have an service request number with the Web Support team which you can view to
get additional information : 233713

Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2003-05-06 13:36:24 UTC
this dependency was removed in 9
there is now:
redhat-config-network and redhat-config-network-tui

Comment 2 James Martin 2003-05-06 14:25:08 UTC
Oh that's, great, I guess I should upgrade my Red Hat AS installations to Red
Hat 9 then, eh?  This was a RFE for Enterprise Linux, not the free distro, thanks.

Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2003-05-06 14:26:38 UTC
well, the next version of the Enterprise Linux will of course have that, too :)

Comment 5 James Martin 2003-05-08 16:08:26 UTC
How about instead of us forcing to upgrade to another OS that you guys actually
fix the issue at hand?  What's next, the kernel is going to require KDE?  The
package did not require Gnome before, it should not require it now, as well as
those other libraries.  What we have now is a mistake by your Errata developers.

Comment 6 Harald Hoyer 2003-05-08 16:16:41 UTC
that's right.. the dependency was forgotten in the first place... but slipped in
as this was corrected.

Comment 7 Carlos R. Martinez 2003-05-08 20:41:05 UTC
So what is RedHat's direction on this package? Do we not include it as part of 
our Quartely patch upgrade? Is the fixed package going to be rebuilt as the 
original or are we going to be forced to install additional packages to 
satisfy its dependencies?
