Did you manage to have all dependencies satisfied, or did you have to resort to --nodeps in some cases? IIRC, the dependencies on Qt and Kerberos that I had mentioned were compile-time (but it's been 2 years, so I might recall incorrectly). I'm not sure if the minimum required set of binary (sub)packages would have these dependencies, too. Please note that there are some security risks associated with having these packages installed and with using them. Specifically, there are SUID/SGID binaries (the X server and more) - you'll want to restrict access to those (with groups). Also, these packages are a bit dated and do not contain Red Hat's newer security fixes, although I am not aware of any that would affect your intended use. -- Alexander Peslyak <solar at openwall.com> GPG key ID: 5B341F15 fp: B3FB 63F4 D7A3 BCCC 6F6E FC55 A2FC 027C 5B34 1F15 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments -- To unsubscribe, e-mail owl-users-unsubscribe@...ts.openwall.com and reply to the automated confirmation request that will be sent to you.
