I need the GDAL Library, when I installed it it also installed a full postgresql. Is that truly needed? I tried other distros and they only install postgreslibs but not a full postgres.
Or am I completely wrong here?
Some like to split packages into many many packages (1 package for every lib). While we typically have main -devel and -dbginfo packages, some places it does make sense for additional splitting. For example, mariadb is split up as it's getting towards 200MB overall.
