#809 closed System Defect (wontfix)

On TrueOS pkg upgrade is trying to install vim which will conflict with vim-lite.

Reported by: jdmulloy Owned by: joshms
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: System Configuration Version: 9.0-RELEASE
Keywords: Cc: trac-bugs@…


Why is pkg trying to install vim when vim-lite is already installed? Also why do I have things like X11 and GTK on TrueOS which is supposed to be a server OS?

Hello! If asking a question please ask on the PC-BSD forums. This is something Kris might know more about, but my guess would be there is a program in TrueOS that wants vim as a dependency instead of vim-lite. Can you clarify why you believe this is a system defect?

To answer your other question, "Also why do I have things like X11 and GTK on TrueOS which is supposed to be a server OS?", I will answer with a question. Why not? There are some programs that may require them (though rare), and sure you may not use them yourself.

A good option for you might be to download the new ISO build scripts when they become available. You will be able to build your own PC-BSD / TrueOS images with or without whichever components you want. They should become publicly available sometime this week.

Best Regards,
