[ASK] Tracking Package Dependencies in /var/cache/apt/archives
Hello, my name is Ade Malsasa Akbar. I have a question about dpkg and
similiar package management tools.
I have downloaded Netbeans after 20+ another applications (Eclipse,
pbuilder, Quassel, etc.). There are hundreds of DEB there. I use Ubuntu
I don't know which DEB dependencies in the cache for Netbeans. I can't
distinct which are DEB dependencies for netbeans between those hundreds
of DEB there.
I wanna track/filter/find DEB dependencies exactly for Netbeans (no
others) from cache for doing sudo dpkg -i *.deb in my another PCs with
same Ubuntu 12.04 version. Assume I have 30 PCs. I wanna install
Netbeans offline, because no bandwidth for downloading again.
What Makes I Brave to Wish:
When I do sudo dpkg -i *.deb in a folder contains only Netbeans and DEB
dependency packages, dpkg can track which package to install first,
which to next, what's next, until end. It can track dependencies of many
DEB in one folder, in local directory. And this type of installation is
so useful in low internet bandwidth country like Indonesia, my country.
What I Don't Wish:
Standard preparation mode for offline installation in case you can see
this page for example: http://www.tuxradar.com/answers/517. I don't want
that method because I have all I need in my cache, I don't want to
download again. That waste my limited bandwidth.
Method of Aptoncd. I wanna Netbeans only, not whole DEB of my cache.
How to do dependency tracking only for Netbeans (only Netbeans, not
others) with all file name completely shown? It should complete and not
only front name like kde-standard or build-essential. I wanna command
result like this:
Dependencies for Netbeans in the /var/cache/apt/archives:
I know only apt-cache, apt-rdepends, apt-offline, and dpkg -l
packagename. Only them. I have read some documentations like dpkg
manpage, apt-offline manpage, a webupd8 page, a debianadmin manual, and
more. All not satisfy my curiosity. Only apt-cache depends packagename
that almost perfectly suite my wish. Any solution from you all? Thank
Respect from Indonesia.
