Is there a way for me to have something like, say Gwenview, without necessarily having to install other unrelated packages that I don't want or need?

Example: I uninstalled Djvu utilities and it uninstalled Gwenview, Kolourpicker, K3B and all sorts of other applications - even K3B.

I don't think this is a very wise idea as it can make (parts of) other applications unusable.
For more info do:
Code:
pisi help
and to get more details:
Code:
pisi help rm
Code:
pisi help it
(see --ignore-dependency option)
But don't complain when an application is having problems after these actions

That is what I am thinking too. At first I couldn't see the reason for bundling some applications together that aren't related in terms of what they do (ie. K3B disc burining software with the DjVu utilities- which are scanning-related tools) Remove one of these and you remove all sorts of other apps.

Then I studied the dependencies a little and realized the the devs likely bundled these things together because of common dependency issues which could make problems if I were to install these apps one by one, which could lead to conflicting versions of various libs.

Same with some other bundles: to get Kate text editor, it comes with other utils.

I am finding Pardus very fast and stable and maybe its this approach of bundling applications (which is different than any other distro I've tried) that makes it so.  Smiley
