Hi, I was going to submit gnome-screensaver to Fedora Extras, and while
checking the spec file for submission, I found the following
Problem #1 - Since gnome-screensaver is a gnome replacement for
xscreensaver, I decided to add "Provide: xscreensaver" but then to the
spec file. The problem is that upgrading xscreensaver will remove
gnome-screensaver (xscreensaver obsoletes itself).
Problem #2 - gnome-screensaver can use xscreensaver hacks if
xscreensaver-extras or xscreensaver-gl-extras are installed, but they
depend on xscreensaver-base, which introduces problem #1.
why do you need to provide "xscreensaver"? Can you not provide
"xscreensaver-base" to solve the problem you want to solve?
