Description louisgtwo 2019-12-10 18:09:08 UTC
libsecret weak dependency on gnome-keyring installs X libraries. Installing minimal fedora installs gnupg2 which has a weak dependency on pinentry. Pinentry requires Installing gnome-keyring installs a bunch of X libs that I do not want on a minimal fedora install.

Comment 1 Kalev Lember 2019-12-10 20:31:25 UTC
Can you turn off weak deps when installing the minimal system?

Comment 2 louisgtwo 2019-12-10 21:15:47 UTC
I install my servers with a usb stick. How do you turn off weak deps in anaconda?

Comment 3 Kalev Lember 2019-12-11 09:26:03 UTC
Not sure if it's possible in anaconda. I know it's possible to disable weak dependencies in kickstart.

See for the background why we added the weak dependency.

Comment 4 louisgtwo 2019-12-11 14:29:07 UTC
Yes I created a kickstart file with --excludeWeakdeps and it worked well. But my point is users picking minimal install from anaconda expect the smallest install possible. Maybe this is an issue for anaconda and setting --excludeWeakdeps by default for minimal installs.

Comment 5 Kalev Lember 2019-12-11 20:15:17 UTC
Yes, not sure what the right fix would be.
