Does wget have gnome dependences?

I followed the CLI Dropbox installation instructions:

The first step is to:

cd ~ && wget -O - "" | tar xzf -

And found that I did not have wget installed (Fedora-17-i686-Live-KDE) I successfully installed wget, and I thought I noticed gnome packages flying by.

  1. Did I, or was I mistaken?
  2. If there are gnome packages required for wget, is there a more KDE-friendly alternative?

Thanks in advance

Grazie, so GLIBC is the GNU C Library, and is not Gnome.

You could also have checked the yum transaction logs to see what packages got installed: yum history list. For more info, man yum.

Try these to check for package dependencies:

rpm -qpR {.rpm-file}
rpm -qR {package-name}


rpm -qR wget

wget uses a 'C' library called 'glibc' which is a part of GNU project. It doesn't require any other gnome packages.
