botch-build-fixpoint(1) find build order until dependency cycles occur


botch-build-fixpoint [options] --available=AvailablePackages Packages.. Sources


Given a list of source packages Sources, return the list of binary packages that can be built without having to break a dependency cycle. The algorithm repeatedly attempts to satisfy build dependencies of all source packages using the available binary packages from AvailablePackages and adds the binary packages of those source packages that satisfy their build dependencies to the set of available binary packages.


show program's version and exit
-h, --help
show this help message and exit
-v, --verbose
print additional information
do no print any messages
-A, --available=AvailablePackages
List of available packages (arch:all, crossed...) in control file format (setting this argument is required). Packages in this list have to be part of Packages.
Drop Build-Depends-Indep dependencies
If a binary package is without a source package but there is a source package of same name but different version, match this binary package to that source package.
instead of stderr, write the calculated build order to this file.
Additional Packages lists that are checked and used for resolving dependencies (can be repeated)
Additional Packages lists that are NOT checked but used for resolving dependencies (can be repeated)
-o, --outfile=FILE
Set the output file FILE
Native architecture ARCH
Host architecture arch. Defaults to native architecture.
Comma-separated foreign architectures in addition to native and host architectures.


Calculate the source packages that can be built in a given state:

 botch-build-fixpoint --deb-native-arch=amd64 --available packages-arch-all --output-order=order.lst packages sources
