botch-create-graph(1) create graph based on installation sets, strong dependency sets or dependency closures


botch-create-graph [options] Packages.. Sources


Given a repository of source packages and binary packages, create the build graph and source graph for it


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=FILE
List of available packages (arch:all, crossed...) in control file format
list of files with dependencies that should not be part of the IS
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.
print progress bars
print timing information
generate a strong build graph (only strong dependencies)
generate a dependency closure build graph (all dependency relationships)
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)
Native architecture ARCH
Host architecture arch. Defaults to native architecture.
Comma-separated foreign architectures in addition to native and host architectures.
By default, installing any binary package requires the coinstallation set of all binary packages marked as Essential:yes to be installed as well. This option drops this requirement.
Calculate a dependency graph where each installation set contains the minimal number of unavailable binary packages.
How many worker processes to run in parallel. Default: 1


Calculate a self-contained repository:

 zcat packages | grep-dctrl -X \( -FPackage build-essential --or -FEssential yes \) > minimal
 dose-deb-coinstall --deb-native-arch=amd64 --bg=packages --fg=minimal > minimal-amd64
 botch-bin2src --deb-native-arch=amd64 minimal-amd64 sources > minimal-src
 grep-dctrl -FArchitecture all packages > available
 botch-create-graph --deb-ignore-essential -A available --deb-native-arch=amd64 --bg sources packages minimal-src > graph.xml
 botch-buildgraph2packages graph.xml packages > min-closure
 botch-packages-union min-closure minimal-amd64 min-closure
 botch-bin2src --deb-native-arch=amd64 min-closure sources > min-closure-src
 dose-builddebcheck --deb-native-arch=amd64 min-closure min-closure-src

The self-contained repository will then be min-closure and min-closure-src.
