Why does latencytop depend on gtk?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • latencytop is something we intend to use in a pure VT or equivalent terminal/CLI environment.
  • Does latencytop really need gtk2 ? Seems like a heavy-weight dependency.
  • We're trying to reduce the dependency on graphics libs for our server builds.


  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6
  • latencytop-0.5-3 or earlier
