A dependency is supposed to be something that's required for a program to work. Removing the dependency from the rpm won't magically make a program work if it really does require the functionality provided by that dependency. If it's not actually required for some reason, then install the .src.rpm, edit the spec file to remove or modify the dependency list, and compile new source and binary rpms. -- MELVILLE THEATRE ~ Real D 3D Digital Cinema ~ www.melvilletheatre.com www.creekfm.com - FIFTY THOUSAND WATTS of POW WOW POWER!
