NAME

botch-y-u-b-d-transitive-essential - Find out why source packages are B-D transitive essential.

SYNOPSIS

botch-y-u-b-d-transitive-essential [options] architecture Packages Sources [pkgname]

DESCRIPTION

Find the reasons why source packages are B-D transitive essential. Assumes that Architecture:all packages need not be bootstrapped. Operates on the strong dependency graph.
An optional package name as the last argument limits the output to that package.

OPTIONS

-h, --help
Display help.
-k, --keep
Keep the temporary files
-T, --timers
time all program executions
-o, --output=DIR
Output directory. Default is the current directory
-t, --tmp=DIR
Temporary directory. Default is created by mktemp(1)
-v, --verbose
Be more verbose
-d, --debug
Maximum verbosity
-D, --develop
Execute tools from the source checkout instead of $PATH

EXAMPLE

To find out why src:sysvinit is b-d-transitive-essential, run:
 botch-y-u-b-d-transitive-essential amd64 Packages Sources sysvinit
Edges from installation sets to source packages (builds-from relationships) can be hard to diagnose. You can use dose-ceve to create a graph that doesn't condense binary packages to their installation sets. This has the disadvantage that also non-strong dependencies are also included.
