qdepends displays DEPENDs but kde-meta defines RDEPENDS, and all of those are themselves just meta packages. kde-meta RDEPENDS on kde-*-meta and should show up with qdepends -r Be careful how deep you do this search, anything you come up with will probably not do the search you want. Rather search the deps of each individual kde meta package. You can't just do a simple deep recursive search, that will find the deps of a package, find the deps of those packages, and the deps of those.... by the time this ends, the command will list probably all of @system and @world -- Alan McKinnnon alan.mckinnon@×××××.com
