[ANN]sbbdep 0.2.0 released with fixes improvements and new features
with some delay caused by real live tasks I am very happy to be able to announce the release of Slackware Builds and Binaries Dependencies (Walker), in short sbbdep, version 0.2.0.
there where a lot of changes, here a shorted summary
some issues with given arguments where fixed
some special handling of rpath for binaries corrected
some special sonames of libraries are respected
dependencies to libelf and libfile removed, elf handling is now done with http://elfio.sourceforge.net/
the above mentioned fixes are improvements
the listed new features are also improvements
sbbdep does now verbose more when creating / syncing the cache,
there is a --quiet option which will turn off these messages
--xdl feature works now for packages and files for both, whoneeds and what's needed, queries
given a file that is not a dynamic linked one, sbbdep will search in the installed packages to find matches for the file name.
short sample for xdl and whoneeds usage
I am aware of the fact that the whoneeds option is for packages sometimes relative, if a lib is also in a different package.
This info is available within the program, but currently I am not sure how to display this info on the command line.
the command line output can become pretty long, and I would like to provide different report formats for output, I will see how I will handle this in future.
I am also start thinking about an (optional) gui for sbbdep.
here a xdl dependencies sample for a very small package
more information can be found here:
the source download can be found here
Note: If you have an existing chache than this needs to be recreated with the new version. IF that's the case the app will inform you.
If you use sbbdep and find any problems, please report them here or in the bitbucket issue tracker
Feedback suggestions and feature requests are welcome.
For the impatient, I updated the Slackware 14 packages I have for sbbdep: http://slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/sbbdep/
