Lightbulb [ANN]sbbdep 0.2.6 released


sbbdep, the tool for exploring binary runtime dependencies on Slackware and Slackware based systems, 0.2.6 has been released.

Download available here:

This release is intended to work on Slackware 14.1 and 14.2, other versions - beside current - are not supported.


ignore option
     Takes a comma separated list of package names, either the base name or
     the full package name, to ignore in the output.
     aaa_base,cxxlibs might be an example for this option.
     This option is valid for dependency queries, useless otherwise.

man page added,
sbbdep has now a manpage,
therefore the existing build script on needs an update, but slackbuilds is currently closed for submissions.
So I will submit this as soon as possible, meanwhile, if you do not want to wait, you can find the 0.2.6 build script attached, plus the info file, to this thread.

assertion handled
this unexpected situation will not longer be handled by an assertion, which triggers an exception and therefore look to a crash.
Instead an info message will be reported.
thanks willysr for the problem report!

update to the latest elfio release
using now version 3.2, for changes see the elfio project.

some internals changes
uninteresting, for the most, details

this is currently available equal on 2 locations (and both are equal not updated to 0.2.6 :-) , written in asciidoc(tor) , written in some other markup.
not sure how I will handle this, I would like to have the asciidoctor version in the bitbucket project but this is currently not possible, will see


if you encounter any problems, have feature requests or some other feedback, please use the issue tracker or this thread
