db depends on uudeview for uudecode

sharutils provides uudecode, but uudeview is not listed in providers

db compiles correctly with sharutils

should db depend UUDECODE and uudeview provide UUDECODE?

    Revert "archive/uudeview: now provides UUDECODE" 

    This reverts commit 3cf28eff16a6723af981cae7d1da4777208b8925.

    uudeview's uudecode isn't possible to use to cast lilo
    btw, why we have these links creation in INSTALL, not by upstream

    ln  -sf  uudeview    ${INSTALL_ROOT}/usr/bin/uudecode               &&
    ln  -sf  uuenview    ${INSTALL_ROOT}/usr/bin/uuencode               &&
    ln  -sf  uudeview.1  ${INSTALL_ROOT}/usr/share/man/man1/uudecode.1  &&
    ln  -sf  uuenview.1  ${INSTALL_ROOT}/usr/share/man/man1/uuencode.1

uudeview should be deprecated and removed from grimoire, imho

it's completely replaced by active-in-development sharutils

+1 for deprecation

We need to check gmime on this, and then change db dependency to UUDECODE. if it won't work -- to sharutils and close the bug

Updated by Remko van der Vossen over 1 year ago

db depends on UUDECODE now
