Why does yum erase wireless-tools want to:
Removing for dependencies:
anaconda
firstboot
rhpl
system-config-(boot,date,date-docs,firewall,
firewall-tui,keyboard,kickstart,language,lvm,
network,network-tui,rootpassword,users,users-docs)

This is a wired desktop, that has absolutely no need for wireless
or indeed wpa-supplicant which want to remove:
NetworkManager
NetworkManager-gnome
anaconda
system-config-kickstart

I know --nodeps could be used, or indeed use "network service"
but currently have no problems with NM

Bu how?, are they tied into so much.

Someone already requested this:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=480558

Why does it bother you? The package is not that big.

You are correct someone has already requested this change. That was almost six months ago, with little to no movement since then. Request for info from the maintainer for for 5+ months. Still has a status of new. Those are the problems I see with the bug report.

As to the bug itself, I can not and will not speak for why it bothers the OP. To answer your question though, it bothers me because I don't want packages on my machine I don't need. As it is my machine that is reason enough. Size is irrelevant.

With all due respect to Jeremy, I am removing his need info flag and assigning this bug as an RFE. This bug has the information needed to be actionable.

If someone feels this is incorrect, feel free to change it again (I don't do revision wars). Just have the courtesy to let me know why you made that change so we are on the same page for the future.
