oops. I meant "dependency management", not a Grass critique, a more
general issue for Linux users ... Thanks for the corrections below, I
kept a couple of files too many didn't I?
My approach ended up being the crash-through-or-crash; install a
package, check the fail message, install the dependency, install the
next package, get the fail message ... The reason for taking things this
way is that although some dependencies are listed as "optional", yum or
rpm see things differently.
A very strong warning for OpenSuse users looking at Grass-GIS, by the
way. Do not use the YAST GUI to install; it won't work.
