Running zypper up tonight, kdegraphics3-pdf would not update due to the
error:

Problem: nothing provides pdftools_any needed by
kdegraphics3-pdf-3.5.10-lp150.156.1.x86_64
Solution 1: do not install kdegraphics3-pdf-3.5.10-lp150.156.1.x86_64
Solution 2: break kdegraphics3-pdf-3.5.10-lp150.156.1.x86_64 by ignoring
some
of its dependencies

I have 3.5.10-lp150.155.1 installed and it is working fine. Did something
change? (or did I fix something/build .155.1 and forget what I did?)

No reason for the pdftools_any dependency. Can the .spec just be updated?

Didn't we go through this here last year? I've been choosing to break too
long to remember.


Yes we did, and the bottom line is the dependency is provided by:

texlive-pdftools

which to install pulls in another 100 texlive files and adds another 180
Megabytes of unneeded cruft. We will need to see what functionality
texlive-pdftools actually provides to kpdf and either write a small pdftools
package to provide that dependency (or if it is small enough a patch) and then
remove the pdftools dependency from the .spec file.

I too have just chosen the break option on install and I haven't seen any
problems at all -- so I have no clue from a usage standpoint what pdftools
adds to kpdf, if anything at present.

The long and short of it is it would be nice to get this dependency cleaned
up. It's harmless, but worth fixing.
