Description Ali Akcaagac 2014-02-07 14:48:50 UTC

This is no bugreport, it's a request! I would like to ask, whether you can offer a "lsb" stub package that only tells the system that LSB 4 requirement has been met.

I ask for this because google-chrome-stable/beta/unstable requires to pull in LSB4 for any reason. Sadly the redhat-lsb packages also require a lot of stuff like perl, gcc, kernel-headers, other headers, systemtap and and and.. Extending the requirement of an ordinary google-chrome install to it's limits.

The LSB package could be named differently "lsb-stub" and should be a standalone package (maybe 10-20kb) that only tells the system "i am already installed" nothing else.

If my request can be achieved differently then please let me know.

I just created a redhat-lsb-dummy file which replaces redhat-lsb (and all its dependencies). I know this breaks the compliance of LSB Standard but otoh also removes all the uncecessary extras that one does NOT want.

If possible, could this dummy be added as final build rpm ? This could allow people to install "redhat-lsb-dummy" before google-chrome for example and cheat the system that all requirements are met.

Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2015-05-29 10:50:38 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '20'.

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.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 20 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 this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

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.

Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2015-06-29 15:03:51 UTC
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
