I have to install CUPS as per Wiki Howto.
But doing 'pacman -S ghostscript' it require XFree86-4.4.x as dep.
How can I avoid it ?
Is it really necessary ?
Under FreeBSD i can do a :
make WITHOUT_X11=yes install
and it is was ok (or also I can install the ghostscript-gui-noX11)
well i suppose you could use ABS to rebuild ghostscript without X support.
Just run abs then navigate into the proper directory. edit the PKGBUILD adding whatever option is required to build X support out. then run makepkg and install the resulting package. you can also add ghostscript to your pacman.conf's "IgnorePkg =" list.
I am not your friend
Theoretically you could also pacman -Sd ghostscript to install it without any dependencies, then pacman -Qi ghostscript to check what other dependencies are required and install them one by one with pacman -S. There is no guarantee that ghostcript will work at all after this. But it should be possible :-)
It would be much better to recompile ghoscript without x with abs.
It will and does work.
