Title: displaying dependencies on gslapt?
Post by: wcs on September 03, 2007, 06:31:07 pm
On my system, it seems that gslapt only displays the dependencies of selected packages when the package is not installed (but not when it is).

Is this a bug? Anyone knows of a fix?

Thank you.

yes, I noticed this on my system as well... perhaps we could ask jaos (http://software.jaos.org/) to add this feature.

I've said this before, but IMHO, gslapt seems to be much more geared towards online package installation than comfortable local package management. Hopefully, jaos will find some time to work on that aspect in the future.

Thanks for the replies... I guess it's about waiting now.
I found myself uninstalling packages to see their dependencies, just to install them again.
