Description Anders Lund 2005-01-10 15:19:59 UTC
gst-plugins depends on gconf, that can't be true. It's claimed to be independent of gnome on the homepage. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. emerge -p gst-plugins 2. 3. Actual Results: pluto ~ # emerge -p gst-plugins These are the packages that I would merge, in order: Calculating dependencies ...done! [ebuild NS ] gnome-base/orbit-2.12.0 [ebuild NS ] gnome-base/gconf-2.8.1-r1 Expected Results: pluto ~ # emerge -p gst-plugins These are the packages that I would merge, in order: Calculating dependencies ...done! [ebuild N ] media-libs/gst-plugins-0.8.5-r1 [ebuild N ] media-plugins/gst-plugins-alsa-0.8.5-r1

Btw, it also installs gst-plugins-oss and gst-plugins-esd if one isn't carefull. Nowadays, at leas on linux, we use ALSA, right?

a) gst-plugins depends on gconf because it provides the helper library for gstreamer-using apps to find the default audio, video sinks and sources. This helper library uses gconf. b) gst-plugins depends on gst-plugins-alsa if you have alsa use flag, gst-plugins-oss if you have oss use flag and gst-plugins-esd if you have esd use flag.
Comment 3 Anders Lund 2005-01-12 05:41:24 UTC
Ok, the dependency on gconf is probably not a gentoo problem then. Too bad when gstreamer markets itself as independent. I had to explicitly put -oss and -esd in my use variable to get rid of those dependencies. So maybe those are _wrongly_ implicitly enabled?
Comment 4 Anders Lund 2005-01-12 05:45:48 UTC
Btw, unless gstreamer can't work without the gconf dependent library, it should just not be installed given -gnome in the use variable.

since apps dep on this lib atm, it will stay a dep in this release cycle. In the upcoming minor release it'll probably get changed.

Thank you for caring.
