Description Ralf Corsepius 2005-07-12 13:07:22 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.7.8-2

Description of problem:
For some strange reason, the synaptic rpm
Requires: yelp

This pulls in mozilla and couple of more "heavyweight" packages, and thus renders synaptic pretty much unusable on small systems.

Also I fail to understand why synaptic should "require yelp", while (AFAIK) no other gtk/gnome package requires yelp. AFAIS, all synaptic does is to provide gnome-help files - These are just contents and are not tied to using any particular tool, such as yelp. - Or am I missing something?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
# yum install synaptic

Actual Results:  ..
  The following NEW packages will be installed:
   gnome-doc-utils (0.2.0-2)
   mozilla (1.7.8-2)
   mozilla-nss (1.7.8-2)
   synaptic (0.55.3-3)
   yelp (2.10.0-1)

Expected Results:  synaptic should not require yelp
