Stand alone dependencies checker

Post#1 by Jack » 14 Jan 2016, 18:48

Is there a stand alone dependencies checker that will work with slackware? I just want to check dependencies on programs before I use them. It can be text base to be run in a terminal.
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

usm

-d [/var/log/packages/package-name] Resolve dependencies for installed
package
-d [NOARG] Resolve dependencies for ALL installed packages

OR

ldd /<Path to>/<Program or Library>. If not sure where program is, use which:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ which nemo
/usr/bin/nemo
guest@porteus:~$ ldd /usr/bin/nemo | grep "not found"
Should list any obious missing dependencies :)
