xscreensaver needlessly depends on libglade2
Last modified: 2013-05-12 01:33:43 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)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum remove libglade2
yum wants to remove libglade2 -> xscreensave-base -> razorqt-panel as dependencies.
yum does not remove xscreensave-base nor its dependencies when removing libglade2
Please put xscreensave-demo into separate subpackage.
* 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.
i.e. Even if I may change dependency of packaging split on F-19 or above,
it won't happen on F-18.
