Description monnier+lists/redhat/bugs 1999-04-30 22:39:02 UTC
I don't have svgalib installed.  But this poses problems
with other packages such as gnuplot and playmidi since
they support svgalib and their packages hence depend on
svgalib.  Of course, I can still install playmidi or
gnuplot using --nodeps and it will work (haven't tried
with gnuplot), but the dependencies are annoying.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-05-03 15:00:59 UTC
the requirements are there because playmidi & gnuplot
ship SVGA front ends... We'll look into splitting the
SVGA parts out into separate packages (or just not
compiling them....)
