Package bluez depends on gnome-bluetooth
Last modified: 2014-02-05 10:18:49 EST
Should bluez really depend on gnome-bluetooth?
I don't know the internals, but it does seem counter-intuitive. Just asking.
Removing bluez leads to removing gnome-bluetooth.
And removing gnome-bluetooth leads to removing bluez!
I was wondering the same thing. Neither should bluez depend on or require gnome-bluetooth nor should gnome-bluetooth depend or require bluez.
The communications between bluez and gnome-bluetooth happens via D-Bus and thus the existence of org.bluez (provided by bluetoothd from bluez) is a runtime dependency. It should be possible to de-install bluez package without de-installing gnome-shell.
The trigger for starting bluetoothd should not be gnome-shell or gnome-bluetooth. It should be triggered by udev and bluetooth.target unit.
bluez-4.101-6.fc18.x86_64 actually depends on:
provider: gnome-bluetooth.x86_64 1:3.6.1-2.fc18
provider: blueman.x86_64 1.23-5.fc18
provider: bluedevil.x86_64 1.3-1.fc18
provider: bluedevil.i686 1.3-1.fc18
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '18'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be
able to fix it before Fedora 18 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
