Description David D. Huff Jr. 2007-12-26 22:14:35 UTC
hplip tries to update to 2.7.10 but there is a requirement in the ebuild for PyQt which brings in unnecessary programs. Yes -minimal can be set but that prevents the xsane front end from being built. There is never a good enough reason to have QT libraries on a system.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge -pv hplip

Actual Results:  
tries to install PyQT and qt and some other rubbish

Expected Results:  
should install cleanly because the -qt3 flag is set

Does't need any QT to build; kindly read the ebuild before filing bugs.

Unless the -minimal flag is use it does need qt. Why would you say such a thing?

from hplip
	!minimal? (
		fax? ( dev-python/reportlab )
		scanner? (
			X? ( >=media-gfx/xsane-0.89 )
			!X? ( >=media-gfx/sane-frontends-1.0.9 )
		X? ( >=dev-python/PyQt-3.14 )

from PyQt

So it never needed qt before but now it does why are you saying what you are?

How about setting USE="-X" and moving on? And yeah, you won't have xsane frontend because it plain doesn't work w/o PyQt.

Thank you for confirming what I was saying, for future reference "kindly read the ebuild" before spouting off to a user and move on.
