It came in even after removing redhat-lsb. It stopped after using --

I know that I can remove single packages, but I'm sure there were more 
unwanted packages getting pulled in. That's why I wanted to know more 
about the cause.

Thanks for the info. I checked the requires and I have most of them on the

redhat-lsb are a very few libraries like libICE. I'll see if adding 
redhat-lsb gives me cups again.
