All installed packages that depend on 'gamin':

 # aptitude search '~i~Dgamin'

All installed packages that 'gamin' depends on:

 # aptitude search '~i~Rgamin'

I'd recommend installing aptitude-doc and read teh documentation on
Search Patterns.

Software is not manufactured, it is something you write and publish.
Keep Europe free from software patents, we do not want censorship
by patent law on written works.

Beauty is more important in computing than anywhere else in technology
because software is so complicated. Beauty is the ultimate defence
against complexity.
