[openFATE 313500] allow to combine modalias and packageand
Feature changed by: Ludwig Nussel (lnussel)
Feature #313500, revision 3
Title: allow to combine modalias and packageand

openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Ludwig Nussel (lnussel)
Partner organization:

Userspace drivers often do not make sense to have installed without the
subsystem using them. E.g. - X drivers without X - sane backends
without sane - cups filters without cups Therefore using modalias for
such driver packages may either be useless or may cause undesired
installation of other packages. Modaliases on X drivers for example
would cause installation of X in the Minimal installation that is
specifically intended to be without X.
We therefore need a way to combine "packageand" and "modalias"
