Description Karl Robillard 2007-01-22 01:57:20 UTC
Description of problem:

The compiz package requires a ton of Gnome packages.  A window manager should 
not require a multimedia framework, a mail database, and CD-ROM burning 

Here is the complete dependency list:

Comment 1 Kristian Høgsberg 2007-03-29 01:55:43 UTC
We require gnome-session in the RPM which is what pulls in the bulk of the GNOME
dependencies.  At this point there is no clean way to provide the user friendly
integration we have without pulling in that package.
