emgrip-edos - add missing dependencies within Emdebian Grip Synopsis emgrip-edos [-s|--suite STRING] [--grip-name NAME] -b|--base-path PATH emgrip-edos -?|-h|--help|--version Commands: -b|--base-path PATH: path to the top level repository directory [required] Options: --grip-name STRING: alternative name for the grip repository -s|--suite STRING: Name of the distribution [default is unstable] Description Runs edos-debcheck against each Packages file in the Emdebian Grip repository, collating data from each component and listing the results. This program can produce a lot of output - best to redirect STDOUT to a file and process later. Once #540797 is fixed, the XML output of edos-debcheck can hopefully be processed into something more useful and readable.

Edos-rpmcheck - Check satisfiability of rpm package dependencies SYNOPSIS
edos-rpmcheck [option] ... [package] ... DESCRIPTION
edos-rpmcheck reads from standard input a set of rpm package descriptions. Packages may appear with multiple versions in this set. For instance, an uncompressed is suitable as input. We say that a package is identified in this set by the pair consisting of the package name and of the package version. A package (called goal) is called installable with respect to a set of packages if there exists a subset of the packages that - contains at most one version for each package name - contains the goal package (in any version, or a specific version) - all packages of the subset have their dependencies and conflicts satisfied in this subset. Edos-rpmcheck checks whether every package given as argument is installable with respect to the input set of packages. Specific versions can be specified by following the package name with the sign '=' and the version of the package (for instance, 'xemacs21=21.4.17-1'). If no package name is given as argument then all packages of the input set are checked for satisfiability. The constraint solving algorithm is complete, that is it finds a solution whenever there exists one, even for multiple disjunctive depen- dencies and deep package conflicts. This problem is computationally infeasible in theory (that is, NP-complete), but can in practice be solved very efficiently. OPTIONS
-explain Explain the results -rules Print generated rules -failures Only show failures -successes Only show successes -base file Specifiy an additional file providing packages that are not checked but used for resolving dependencies -quiet Supress warnings and progress/timing messages -xml Output results in XML format -help, --help Display this list of options EXAMPLE
Check which packages in a particular distribution are not installable and why: gunzip -c | edos-rpmcheck -failures -explain where is the file pertaining to that distribution. Check whether version 21.4.17-1 of the xemacs21 package is installable in a distribution described by the file Packages: gunzip -c | edos-rpmcheck -explain xemacs=21.4.17-1 AUTHOR
