In trying to install the afaapps package on a minimal RH7.3 box it fails on
a dependency to

Is there a reason the afaapps utilities require arts?  

Package Description:
arts (analog real-time synthesizer) is the sound system of KDE 3.

The principle of arts is to create/process sound using small modules which do
certain tasks. These may be create a waveform (oscillators), play samples,
filter data, add signals, perform effects like delay/flanger/chorus, or
output the data to the soundcard.

By connecting all those small modules together, you can perform complex
tasks like simulating a mixer, generating an instrument or things like
playing a wave file with some effects.

The package I downloaded of Dell's web site is: afa-linux-app-A01.tar.gz

It contains both the afacli & a snmp module.  

Thanks in advance,
