Subject: [gentoo-user] Finding which package requires another
Date: Mon, 24 Apr 2006 15:00:52
1 I've removed Apache from my system (using `emerge -C') in order to use a
2 version I've compiled/installed to /usr/local. My world file has no
3 traces of apache, php, apr or apr-util, nor can I see anything in there
4 that should require Apache be installed. `equery depends apache'
5 reports nothing, yet when I run `emerge -pvuD world', emerge wants to
6 re-install Apache, PHP and everything else I've removed.
8 Am I correct that `equery depends apache' should list the packages that
9 require Apache? If that's the case, then is there something cached or
10 in another file that makes Gentoo think it needs to re-install Apache?
12 thx -
