Description Eugene A. Pivnev 2013-05-12 01:12:19 EDT
Description of problem:
Xscreensaver-base contains demo application that requires libglade2 (and gtk2 as dependency) that is not necessary in non-GTK environments (like RazorQt or KDE).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xscreensaver-base-5.21-5.fc18.i686 (and older)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum remove libglade2
Actual results:
yum wants to remove libglade2 -> xscreensave-base -> razorqt-panel as dependencies.

Expected results:
yum does not remove xscreensave-base nor its dependencies when removing libglade2

Additional info:
Please put xscreensave-demo into separate subpackage.
Comment 1 Mamoru TASAKA 2013-05-12 01:31:50 EDT
* xscreensaver daemon needs xscreensaver configuration, i.e. xscreensaver-demo.
* Anyway F-18 is released 4 months ago and this type of discussion is not
  suitable for F-18.
Comment 2 Mamoru TASAKA 2013-05-12 01:33:43 EDT
i.e. Even if I may change dependency of packaging split on F-19 or above,
it won't happen on F-18.
