(In reply to Michal Srb from comment #4)
I see. The dependency on icewm was added as solution for bnc#956537. Ideally
xorg-x11-Xvnc would depend on something like "any desktop environment or
icewm as fallback". No idea if this can be done with RPM.

In theory, yes - all 'WMs' / 'DEs' could provide one 'generic symbol' (e.g
Provides: any-window-manager) and xorg-x11-Xvnc could then Requires:

For as long as the user installs a graphical system, this would be satisfied -
otherwise if xorg-x11-Xvnc is benig installed on a system without any DE yet,
zypper will 'pick one' (where it tries to minimize the number of packages

so, in fact you can't really say : if none is there, pick icewm' - chances are
though that zypp will go this route as it is likely the smallest stack to

So I don't object removing xorg-x11-Xvnc from the pattern.

Thanks - I'll submit this in the coming days.
