Apologies if I posted this one in the wrong thread....
I just did the big upgrade.
I saw one of the new dependencies, which to my shock was Mono. I tracked the dependency down to libgpod and lib4gpod, ie the stuff you need to access Ipods etc. I tried removing those packages but it turns out that Kipi, Digikam, Amarok and other KDE apps depend on those two packages.
In effect, the KDE packages from Pclos now depend on Mono/.Net....?
I fully understand that the developers do as they want to do, but would it be possible to have KDE and associated apps without having to depend on Mono/.Net/Microsoft....?
Thanks for your understanding ;-)
