Comments on: Reducing YaST rebuild time by 30% Blogs and Ramblings of the openSUSE Members Fri, 06 Mar 2020 17:50:09 +0000 hourly 1 By: Saulo Thu, 13 Oct 2016 20:39:49 +0000 checkmedia is set as “recommended” (not required), see below:

# ensure that ‘checkmedia’ is on the medium
Recommends: checkmedia

But as we cant use it without the “checkmedia” package. I suppose it should be set as a required dependency. Anyway I know it envolves a change in how yast deps are packaged, so it is just a suggestion.

Thank you for everybody in your Team for improve Yast!

Regarding the Media Check, we do have checkmedia as a soft dependency:

# rpm -qf /usr/share/YaST2/clients/checkmedia.rb
# rpm -qf /usr/share/YaST2/clients/checkmedia.rb –recommends

By: saulo Tue, 11 Oct 2016 23:31:00 +0000 It shows only deps between yast packages, but it would be great if yast package also include external deps, for example:
Software -> “Media Check”

It always ask to user install “checkmedia” package (it is very annoying) Why yast2 package do not include “checkmedia” as a dependency?

Same problem for yast modules: “printer”, “scanner”, “remote administration”, etc…
