gdm should not recommend ubuntu-sounds

Bug #260558 reported by Andrew Hunter on 2008-08-23
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gdm (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gdm

With the new apt policy of installing recommends by default, ubuntu-sounds is depended upon by ubuntu-desktop.

Derivative distros don't necessarily want ubuntu-sounds installed.
