#12087 new defect

cryptsetup package dependencies overly broad

Reported by: thegrugq@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: cryptsetup lvm2 Cc:


The cryptsetup package has a dependency on LVM2 which is unnecessary. On space constrained devices this causes problems as the LVM2 package is relatively large.

I've been manually editing the Packages file to remove the 'lvm2' dependency to cryptsetup without negative effect. It would be nice if this was the default, however. Any user who wants lvm2 support can install that package separately.
