Description Pacho Ramos 2011-08-30 19:16:21 UTC
Looking to: http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg204246.html Looks like we could drop that dependency when removing libsexy and libsexymm, can you verify? Thanks Reproducible: Always

They added they but also this is noted in log: +Revision 1.48 2009/12/13 16:20:08 glen +- libsexy is loaded if libsexymm is found too Then, maybe it's not required if cannot find any of them...

The dependency is gone for current version vmware-workstation-9 and vmware-player-5, but still needed for earlier major versions. At least for workstation it would make sense to keep the old versions around, for whoever does only have a ws- license...
