Ok ... I know this has been discussed ad nauseum before ... but the "Calibre-is-a-dependency-of-everything-monster" is back.
I'm setting up one of my older IBM T23 laptops with LXDE for my two young nieces. I've been working on this for a while (as I have time), trying to get everything set up and "just so" for them. It is a fresh installation of PCLinuxOS LXDE 2012.06, with a few extra items thrown in for their convenience, such as OOo4Kids (yes, it's in our repos), Foxit Reader, AbiWord, TuxPaint and DeaDBeeF, as well as the necessary libraries to play back DVDs on the laptop. The laptop was last updated a few weeks ago.
Lo and behold, as I was performing last minute updates (I don't want to give them a laptop that hasn't been updated), I noticed that Calibre 0.9.4 was being downloaded and installed. Trust me ... Calibre wasn't even on my radar of programs to install on this laptop, due to its intended "target audience" and the limited resources of this older laptop. However, after performing the latest set of updates on it this morning, Calibre is now installed.
This morning's update consisted of 44 updates, including Calibre 0.9.4.
I know it's a needle-in-a-haystack thing, but maybe someone can check to see what is pulling in Calibre (again), even when it's not wanted? I also know we had this "problem" solved not too long ago. But ... it's back!
