Disallow an unwanted dependency: yum install...


Using Fedora 12 , 64 bit.

Question:
Can I disallow a dependency at install time (yum) ?

I wish to install "claws-mail" , but not the dependencies...
I won't use bluetooth or pilot, so can I disallow them using
'yum' ?

=================================================================
Package Arch Version Repository Size
=================================================================
Installing:
claws-mail x86_64 3.7.3-1.fc12 fedora 3.2 M

Installing for dependencies:
bluez-libs x86_64 4.57-2.fc12 fedora 72 k
pilot-link x86_64 2:0.12.4-3.fc12 updates 580 k

Thank you.

I do not think you can and make it work. You could download it manually and install it with rpm --nodeps. You could also grab the source rpm and rebuild it without the wanted support.

Considering the size of the two packages I would just ignore them.

Thanks Lazlow.

In debian based "apt-get", if there are "recommends" you can disallow them (apt-get install --no-install-recommends). These aren't dependencies necessarily but 'recommended' additional packages.

Question:
How does yum manage/list/disallow the 'recommended' packages or are these not available in a Fedora (yum management) system?

Thank you.

Dependencies are yes or no with an RPM based system, there is not a recommended category.
