    Removing cheese removes a lot of other gnome stuff

    Removing cheese removes gnome-bluez, gnome-shell, and a whole lot of other system stuff. How do I have it NOT do that?

    ---------- Post added at 05:13 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:45 PM ----------

    cheese-libs is responsible for this. It's 3.7 MB sadly, a lot more sizable than the program itself. Any way to remove the libs without removing all of that?

    Wondering if rpm -e --nodeps would be of use in this situation? Might be worth looking into.

    Yeah.
    PHP Code:
    su
    rpm 
    ---nodeps cheese-libs 
    Don't do that without investigating the command first. It was just a suggestion.

    What are you trying to accomplish? If I try to remove cheese on my Fedora 16 system using yum remove cheese is the only package that will be removed.

    Re: Removing cheese removes a lot of other gnome stuff

    You're removing cheese-libs. I demonstrated using cheese. You initially wanted to remove cheese ???

    Re: Removing cheese removes a lot of other gnome stuff

    Yes, including the libs >_> cheese-libs should be only for cheese (hence its name)

    Why would those things depend on cheese-libs?

    Re: Removing cheese removes a lot of other gnome stuff

    you didnt do exactly what Glennzo said above. DO NOT USE YUM to remove it, use RPM

    rpm -e cheese-libs --nopeds

    Is it supposed to not show any output?

    Code:
    [root@Mune-PC ian]# rpm -e cheese-libs --nodeps
    [root@Mune-PC ian]#

    Re: Removing cheese removes a lot of other gnome stuff

    That is correct. Without the -v (verbose) option it does it's job without printing anything to the screen.
    Code:
    rpm -q cheese-libs
    will verify that it is now gone.
