Summary: devel:gcc/libgcj45: Bug - Subpackage needed to prevent
GUI deps on non-GUI installs
Classification: openSUSE
Version: unspecified
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Enhancement
Priority: P5 - None
Component: 3rd party software
AssignedTo: rguenther@xxxxxxxx

The gcc-gcj package should be split into sub-packages to avoid dependency
problems that require the installation of GUI components (gtk/x11) on systems
where no desktop is installed and none is wanted. This affects 11.4 (presumable
12.1 also) Currently gcj includes, among others,
/usr/lib64/gcj-4.5-11/ that requires various gtk components to be
installed, even on minimal systems where no desktop is installed or wanted.
These gcj components that required GUI support should be moved to a subpackage
to eliminate GUI components installed as dependencies where they are not needed
or wanted.

A prime example of the problem can be seen when attempting to install 'pdftk'
on minimal system installs. pdftk relies on gcj, but pdftk is a command line
utility. Attempting to install pdftk on a minimal system results in the
