Description Lamont Peterson 2005-07-16 16:46:47 UTC
Description of problem:  
The yumex package does not depend on the glade2 package.  If glade2 is not 
installed,  yumex fails to run. 
I built this system by starting with a "minimal" install, stripping about 100  
packages off of that and then adding only what I needed/wanted.  "yum install  
yumex" successfully ran and, IIRC, included a couple of dependencies or so.  
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):  
How reproducible:  
With glade2 *not* installed, install yumex (prefereably with yum, but 
Steps to Reproduce:  
1.  Perform a minimal install, without GNOME. 
2.  Install yumex 
3.  Try to run yumex, missing glade support is indicated by fatal launch  
Actual results:  
# yumex 
Traceback (most recent call last): 
  File "/usr/share/yumex/", line 23, in ? 
    import yumWrapper 
  File "/usr/share/yumex/", line 48, in ? 
    from YumexUtils import * 
  File "/usr/share/yumex/", line 23, in ? 
ImportError: No module named glade 
Expected results:  
yumex should run, as the installation of the RPM should depend on whatever 
package is missing that is causing this error (it is *not* the glade2 package, 
see below). 
Additional info:  
If you want me to write a patch for the SPEC file, I will.  I figured that  
this kind of one-liner would just be easier for you to fix without a SPEC  
I have manually (I say manually as in "I had to use a separate yum comand") 
installed glade2 and found that it did not provide whatever is missing.  Here 
is a listing of some (possibly) related packages I have on this system: 
$ rpm -qa *glade* 
I build RPMs on this system.  I do not remember when the libglade2-devel 
package got installed, but I am sure that is the reason why.

Comment 1 Tim Lauridsen 2005-07-17 09:48:58 UTC
It is pygtk2-libglade you are missing
I have added 
Requires: pygtk2-libglade
to my SPEC file in CVS, it will be included in the next release.
