Strange dependency problem #97
I wanted to install x2goserver, but didn't really remember the correct package name, so I typed:
Both packages were installed, but I was unable to run x2goserver because of missing runtime dependencies... All these deps are mentioned in https://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds/14.2/network/x2goserver/x2goserver.info but somehow
I had to run:
afterwards to have the required deps installed.
So there seems to be a problem with resolving dependencies when the given package name resolves to multiple possibilities, in this case I used
The dependencies are a little difficult το resolve in this case because sometimes the matching names it is very big, like this:
so we may found one other solution...
Now I understand the problem.
Slackpkg does matching, but it will not resolve any deps, so in the case, where deps are not resolved, matching is OK, but slackpkg still has a separate option just for searching
Because in a scenario, when we have scripts using
and somehow packagename gets removed from slackbuilds but there are other packages that will be matched by
I'm not sure if this is a solution because when
ale these found packages will be installed.
