11 I have basic Gnome libs for Gvim & Epiphany, but it wants 35 deps, incl

23 I don't have a sound card & have removed all sound software from my box.
24 Whyever would Gedit want sound pkgs or a CD burner ??

26 It's probably easier for AH to use Kwrite, if he doesn't like Vim:
27 even if he has no KDE pkgs installed, it won't ask for 35 deps ...
