Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 98680
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:55:31 EDT
Description of problem:
The kernel-source rpm requires qt-devel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
qt-devel is required because the kernel uses qt to do xconfig this is not a
bug but a result of upstream changes.
But it is not needed for 'make menuconfig', 'make gconfig' or for compiling
external modules with the kernel (VMware). If qt-devel is to be required then
so should glib2-devel, but neither is really appropriate.
p.s. This is a particular problem for servers not already running X.
I've removed the dependency
Now kernel-source is no longer needed nor used for building external modules.
The only use for it is compiling your own kernel based om the RH sources.
