Is there any reason to use the gstreamer-gnomevfs package?

I have most of the gstreamer (0.10) packages onboard, but not that one, I do use gvfs for mounting. trash etc, but so far have not seen any bugs that might indicate a missing package.

The explanation of the package says it's mainly to deal with Shoutcast, but internet radio works fine without it.

Oddball question I know, but i'm down to dealing with the smaller dirty details in Vuu-do, and I really want to fine-tune it and use only what is actually needed to perform the intended tasks.

Re: Is there any reason to use the gstreamer-gnomevfs package?

gnomeVFS is not GVfs.  To cut a long story short this is legacy ghome 2.x stuff, you don't need it, but not installing gstreamer0.10-gnomevfs will free up 599kB...

It depends on some gconf packages, those will be much larger, but it's likely other packages depend on them as well.

What will help you is a reverse depends lookup, e.g.

$ apt-cache --installed rdepends gstreamer0.10-gnomevfs

Or

$ aptitude why gstreamer0.10-gnomevfs

This will tell you why a certain package is installed.

Also I assume you've disabled recommends and suggests in your apt configuration to cut down on crap?

Oh most definitely, but there are times that policy will cause some bit of functionality to be left out, i'm going through all the programs I use one-by-one trying to add what's needed for common functions back in now.

Great info cynwulf, thanks for responding!  It's all the little things that add up, I ran a test snapshot last night of the maximal version and it's down to a tidy 585 mb, and yet it does more than ever.

Long dang process doing this stuff, and quite a ways to go yet.

By the way, the answer to your question in this locked thread: http://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?pid=5934#p5934

Is in my last post.  Though I suggest just installing aptitude.

I thought that, too. Then I posted on it. I guess the OP meant to mark it 'solved' instead of 'closed'. When you enter the thread, look on the right side, just above the message, it says 'post reply' instead of 'topic closed'. Also, subject says (Closed) instead of Closed:
