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?

Thank you!


Those are not packages. They are package repositories you have installed on your system, which contain packages.
