Why does GNOME require Gnash? And what can I do to put a stop to it?
Look at the following metapackages, their descriptions and dependencies:
Choose the one which best suits your purposes and install it.
Oddly, for some reason, they all require Gnash. I'm rooting for Gnash,
I hope Gnash works out in the end, and with HTML5 video tag, maybe it
will, but on my system, in Sqeeze, all three packages are installed,
they all require each other, and they all require Gnash, which at the
moment, is not my first choice. At all.
I'm surprised to hear that gnome-core requires gnash. It's certainly not
the case on Lenny:
$ apt-cache depends gnome-core
Which release are you running?
$ apt-cache --recurse depends gnome | \
grep -B30 ' Depends: mozilla-plugin-gnash'
Package gnome depends on mozilla-plugin-gnash which depends on gnash.
Mark could always just remove gnome. It's just a metapackage.
