Description Juan 2005-07-03 09:54:43 UTC
I am a KDE user. I want nothing more than having little to no trace of Gnome
running on my system. However, when I want to install gst-plugins for use with
amaroK+gstreamer, I am forced to installed gconf, part of the gnome base.

I have tested installation and post-installation of my gst-plugins install
WITHOUT gconf installed. It seems to work fine under this environment (I don't
use gstreamer for video so I'm not sure how that would be effected, if any).

I have modified the most current gst-plugins (gst-plugins-0.8.10.ebuild) ebuild
with the IUSE option of gnome. With gnome enabled, gconf is installed, without
it it is not.

In all, I'm really not sure of the implications of using gst-plugins without
gconf. But my experience has been good. I'm submitting the ebuild with my
modification so that this option may be considered for future gst-plugins.ebuild
releases so that us KDE users don't need to install gconf.

If anything, I would like to know why gnome-base/gconf is a dependancy of
media-libs/gst-plugins under the KDE environment for use *ONLY* with amaroK (as
the sound engine).

We will fix this with the next major release of gstreamer (0.10).  Now it would
impact a lot of ebuilds to do this.
