view list of recursive dependencies online

Postby Chrisdb » 2020-01-28 11:58

Hi guys,

It's not always possible for me to use my debian box, so I was wondering if there is an option to view recursive dependencies online, like f.e. with Arch linux if you look for a certain package, you get info on packages that require the current one.

I can't seem to find anything like this on Debian:
https://packages.debian.org/buster/gedit

f.e. the package 'rabbitvcs-gedit' requires gedit, but it is not listed here

Unclear what you mean by "online", but see depends / reverse depends.

Code: Select all
apt-cache depends gedit
apt-cache rdepends gedit
or
Code: Select all
apt depends gedit
apt rdepends gedit

Thx, but I know the commands.

The URL I posted contains the dependencies, but not the reverse dependencies.

The reason I ask is because I do not always have a Linux pc available and sometimes I just want to check something online

I don't think it is possible to find reverse dependencies "online".
This can only work on a defined database.
