weird dependencies with gnomelibs
« on: April 05, 2009, 03:21:01 pm »

Well I think this is halfway my fault, because I didn't checked the depencies before I installed something, but I think there must be some weird dependencies with some packages.

At first I just wanted to configure firestarter, but it said that it needed libgnomeui to show the configuration-screen. So I installed it and it worked fine. After some time I noticed that Nautilus was installed too and since I didn't want Nautilus I removed it with slapt-get. But with Nautilus slapt-get removed firestarter and Firefox too (maybe some other programms too and I just didn't noticed now).
Well after I noticed Firefox was removed too I reinstalled it ( version 3.0.8 ) and now I have Nautilus again and there are even Icons on my fluxbox desktop  :o

How can I delete Nautilus and the Icon thing (don't know which lib is responsible for the Icons) without deleting firefox?

PS: and Firefox likes to crash without any reason now :-\

Ok, I've managed to remove Nautilus without removing Firefox and the rest with it.
After this installing/removing stuff without looking at the dependencies I had some problems but everything works fine again (or even better now  :D)

I still don't know why Firefox crashed at that day so much, but now Firefox runs stable (maybe it had a bad day)
