Package dependancies on Solaris
This is not on-topic, but I would apprecite an answer.
A client I am migrating from Solaris 7 to Debian/Sparc has tonnes of stuff
installed. There is no documentation ntation on why a particular package
was installed. To enable us to create a list of services that he is
running, we started to de-install packages, useing pkgrm, and checking if
the dozens of services he requires still work.
What I need is the equivalent of dselect for Solaris. ie, I wish to
remove SUNWdtcor, the CDE Core package, and all that depend on it.
If I do a pkgrm, I am told of dependancies that will break, but cannot
say, OK, remove them too.
My Solaris experience is 3 years old. Any pointerv will be deeply
appreciated. For what its worth, I want to hit the X system first, the
machines (old and new machines will be headless).
