When running yum install nodejs on Centos 7.4 I see a lot of packages that to my knowledge has nothing to do with nodejs.
Here is part of the list of the packages yum downloads:
nginx | 2.9 kB 00:00 nginx/primary_db | 41 kB 00:00 remi-php71 | 3.0 kB 00:00 remi-php71/primary_db | 207 kB 00:00
Does nodejs really need those packages? If not, why they are downloaded?
