Description Ananda Samaddar 2013-05-09 21:15:08 UTC
Description of problem: When installing Deluge gnome-python2 brings in a lot of unneeded dependencies.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.3.6-1.fc18

How reproducible: yum install deluge

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install deluge from the command line
2. Observe required dependencies
Actual results: gnome-python2, gnome-python2-bonobo, gnome-python2-canvas, gnome-python2-gnome, gnome-python2-gnomevfs as dependencies.  This brings in things like libbonobo and a whole load of other stuff.

Expected results: No expected Gnome dependencies.

Additional info: Deluge is cross platform and runs on Windows.  This should further suggest that Gnome python libs are unneeded.

Comment 1 Rahul Sundaram 2013-05-09 22:07:23 UTC
Deluge uses these GNOME libraries on Linux and other libraries on other platforms.   Deluge itself is a meta package.  deluge-gtk is the actual package that has the following direct dependencies

Requires:   gnome-python2-gnome
Requires:   hicolor-icon-theme
Requires:   notify-python
Requires:   pygtk2-libglade

Which of these do you believe is unnecessary?

Comment 2 Ananda Samaddar 2013-05-09 22:24:59 UTC
It is gnome-python2-gnome that I believe is unnecessary.  If you try installing that particular package it brings in a lot of dependencies as part of the yum output shows:

Transaction Summary
Install  1 Package (+13 Dependent packages)

Deluge to the best of my knowledge is a pure GTK application and doesn't have Gnome dependencies.

Comment 3 Ananda Samaddar 2013-05-09 22:29:26 UTC
The gnome-python2-gnome dependency should be replaced with pygtk2 I believe.

Comment 4 Rahul Sundaram 2013-05-10 01:36:27 UTC
I have reviewed the list of dependencies and added/removed some as per latest upstream requirements.  Will be pushing out a build that fixes this problem shortly. Do test and provide feedback

Unfortunately I cannot test this as I'm running Fedora 18 and the update is for 19.  Could you also push an update to 18?
