plasma-applet-nm wants to pull GNOME and selinux related RPM
When trying to install plasma-applet-nm, urpmi wants to pull GNOME and selinux related RPM.
See attached log.
I really don't think they must be pulled with Network Manager under Plasma.
I know NM is desktop independent and GNOME requires it, but it is like an egg/chicken order.
At installation time, under DrakX, if user wants GNOME, NM is mandatory with this DE, so it is pulled with it, but it does not install plasma wallet and plasma-applet-nm.
At installation time, under DrakX, if user wants Plasma, NM is not necessary. Later, he wants NM, but this should not pull GNOME related RPM.
Suggestion, make GNOME really requires NM but make NM don't require GNOME RPM.
Assigned to the KDE maintainers.
CC'd GNOME one for advice.
(Please set the status to 'assigned' if you are working on it)
Gnome pkgs are pulled because of networkmanager-l2tp requires gnome-keyring. Networkmanager recommends networkmanager-l2tp.
I will remove this requirement.
AFAIK since many years desktop specific keyrings have been replaced with 'libsecret' (cross desktop solution). So hopefully the requirement is old.
Checking the networkmanager-l2tp changelog and spec this should be fixed.
