openjdk-7 dependencies in Wheezy
I'm using Wheezy and have openjdk-6-jre installed. Since openjdk-7-jre is available in Wheezy, I wanted to upgrade to it.
In Synaptic, I selected openjdk-7-jre. Although I already have openjdk-6-jre installed, Synaptic came back with a list of dependencies that need to be installed. They include: gnome-mime-data, libgnome2-0, libgnomevfs2-0.
Since I don't use gnome, (I use xfce and lightdm) I was surprised. Why does openjdk-7-jre require all this gnome stuff, which openjdk-6-jre does not?
