Why does Evolution needs network-manager

Post by dschmid » Sun Apr 26, 2009 16:29

Hello, i want to use Evolution. But I'm using wicd instead of network manager. Why needs Evolution the network manager packet in sabayon? In other distros Evolution don't depends on network manager. Is somebody running evolution without network manager?

I don't use Evolution, but I notice in the ebuild file (evolution-2.24.5.ebuild) that "networkmanager" is one of the USE flags that you can select when building Evolution. Thus, if you don't want to use NetworkManager, then you could try building Evolution with the networkmanager USE flag switched off to see if that solves your problem:

Code: Select all

USE="-networkmanager" emerge -1v evolution
