Description Chris Bainbridge (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-15 14:42:52 UTC
gtk and gtk-sharp are actually unconditional depends in the ebuild. The gtk USE flag seems to pull in gnome-sharp; if this is right it should be renamed to the "gnome" USE flag, or if gtk is actually conditional then it should be in the gtk?() block.
Comment 1 Daniel Drake (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-15 15:55:39 UTC
gtk+ is an unconditional requirement of beagle.

The gtk use flag controls whether the UI gets built. gnome-sharp and co are requirements for beagle-search but not for the core beagle daemon itself.

I think the gtk use flag is more appropriate here as the beagle-search GUI is not GNOME-specific.
Comment 2 Chris Bainbridge (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-15 17:41:57 UTC
But it pulls in a whole load of gnome packages, including gnome-desktop, gnome-panel. Compare:

USE="-gtk -gnome" emerge app-misc/beagle -vpe|grep gnome
USE="gtk -gnome" emerge app-misc/beagle -vpe|grep gnome

4 packages versus 23 packages.. the gtk use flag is pulling in 19 gnome specific packages.
Comment 3 Daniel Drake (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-15 18:20:21 UTC
Use flags are about functionality and not the dependencies which they bring in. This flag adds a GTK+ GUI, *not* a GNOME app.
Comment 4 Luis Medinas (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-15 18:28:14 UTC
This bug was already reported previously and Daniel is right we can't do nothing about it.
Comment 5 Chris Bainbridge (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-15 19:15:10 UTC
Hmmm well the beagle FAQ disagrees with you:

"The included user interface is a GNOME application, but it too is an optional build. There are many other search interfaces that are shipped separately. KDE interfaces include Kerry and yaBi" -
