Description Jon Nelson (RETIRED) 2002-03-29 21:51:11 UTC
and gnome-control-center is req'd by galeon.
Note that I didn't have gnome in my use flags, but to get gnome-control-center
to compile, I had to add it and rebuild gdk-pixbuf.

Thank you very very much for this bug report.  I have been on a crusade to
de-bloat various things, and my biggest complaint with galeon was that it pulled
in most of GNOME.  I do use galeon, but I ignored gnome-core and control-center
and what-not.  Anyway, it turns out that you do not need
gnome-core at all. And, since control-center was being pulled in by gnome-core,
you ran into the issue that you did.  So, you may safely unmerge gnome-core and
control-center, and remove "gnome" from your USE flag. Then, remerge libglade,
gdk-pixbuf, and galeon, and all should be fine.  Please let me know.
Comment 2 Jon Nelson (RETIRED) 2002-03-30 07:41:52 UTC
I did as you just asked.
However, when I try and emerge gdkpixbuf and galeon, I get:

Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild   R  ] media-libs/gdk-pixbuf-0.16.0-r5 to /
[ebuild  N   ] gnome-base/gnome-core- to /
[ebuild  N   ] gnome-base/bonobo-1.0.19-r1 to /
[ebuild    U ] net-www/galeon-1.2.0-r1 to /

So it still wants to pull in gnome-core, but at least it doesn't try to pull in
control-center anymore.

So. I toss gnome-libs.

I look in galeon-1.2.0-r1's build dependencies:

OOps. My bad. Didn't wait long enough for the rsync.
Thanks!  Will let you know re: success/failure.
