Description From 2005-01-10 18:36:41
Master 2.4

# rpm -e tcb-utils
error: removing these packages would break dependencies:
        tcb-utils >= 0.9.8 is needed by shadow-utils-4.0.0-alt15
        /etc/tcb   is needed by passwd-1.0.5-alt1

while the package contains only converting utilities and manpages

(stumbled upon while minimizing a vserver)

Funny that
$ rpmquery -f /etc/tcb
warning: file /etc/tcb is not owned by any package

but
$ apt-cache showpkg /etc/tcb
Package: /etc/tcb
Versions: 

Reverse Depends: 
  vlock,/etc/tcb
  passwd,/etc/tcb
  kdebase-common,/etc/tcb
Dependencies: 
Provides: 
Reverse Provides:

and
$ apt-cache whatdepends tcb-utils
tcb-utils-0.9.8.8-alt3
  shadow-utils-1:4.0.4.1-alt4
    PreDepends: tcb-utils >= 0.9.8

Seems to be OK
