To clear this up: From #608812 > ices2 depends libroar0. > libroar0 recommends roaraudio-server which is virtual, muroard got > selected. > libroar0 depends libdnet. > libdnet recommends dnet-common. The network setup thingy is part of dnet-common. Installing without it is possible. libdnet does not produce strange errors on missing dnet-common, it just detects the non existing support (implecide) and returns normal ENOSYS and friends. So no problem here if not installed. So please have a look if installing without recommends works. Depends of ices2 on libroar0 isn't the problem. I suggest to: close the bug as invalid (it's not ices2's problem) as the install does exactly what it is suppost to do: it try to set up the system in a way all features works OR re-assign it to source package dnprogs which includes libdnet and dnet-common and request for some better way to solve this. I do not consider this a ices2 bug as dnet-common is not a depends or recommends of ices2. > Does ices2 really need to have decnet installed and configured? No, but: libroar0 is used and it depends on libdnet so installed libdnet is required (but the lib is very small and and stuff so I do not consider this a problem). Configrued: no but in the case you actually want to use DECnet support.
