Depends for sabayonlinux-artwork Pulling Full KDE [Solved]

Postby DontPanic » Tue Aug 14, 2007 17:46

The new dependencies for the sabayonlinux-artwork package are really giving me heart-burn.

They pull in the full blown KDE package set, and pull in all of Gnome if you have the gnome flag set. None of my existing installed KDE or Gnome packages have this dependency.

I have the kde-base/kdebase-meta installed to give me a KDE with a smaller footprint, but the sabayonlinux-artwork package is now trying to force the full blown kde meta package.

I have to say I'm a little annoyed that these dependencies were retroactively added to the 3.40-r1 release. This is a significant change in the packages' behavior, and warrants a revision increment of some sort.

can't you just add to your package.use ??

Code: Select all
x11-themes/sabayonlinux-artwork -gnome -kde

That addition to package.use worked perfectly.

Thanks again Wolfden.

Actually, this issue has still been giving me some problems.

As it turns out, if you have a small footprint kde and gnome installed, but tell sabayonlinux-artwork to emerge with "-kde -gnome", it doesn't install the artwork for kde and gnome. Go figure. :)

So I went in and adjusted the ebuild files. I deleted:
Code: Select all
DEPEND="
        gnome? ( || ( gnome-base/gnome gnome-base/gnome-light ) )
        kde? ( || ( kde-base/kde-meta kde-base/kde ) )
        "

and replaced it with:
Code: Select all
DEPEND="
        gnome? ( || ( gnome-base/gdm ) )
        kde? ( || ( kde-base/kdm ) )
        "

Then, I digested the modified ebuild file, and re-emerged sabayonlinux-artwork.

Looking at the file list that was installed, my DEPEND modification is probably over-simplified, but it works on my system, and I now at least have my sabayonlinux-artwork back.

Sabayon-Linux just doesn't feel like Sabayon-Linux without the artwork. :)
