rpmgraph - Display RPM Package Dependency Graph
rpmgraph PACKAGE_FILE ...
rpmgraph uses PACKAGE_FILE arguments to generate a package dependency
graph. Each PACKAGE_FILE argument is read and added to an rpm transac-
tion set. The elements of the transaction set are partially ordered
using a topological sort. The partially ordered elements are then
printed to standard output.
Nodes in the dependency graph are package names, and edges in the
directed graph point to the parent of each node. The parent node is
defined as the last predecessor of a package when partially ordered
using the package dependencies as a relation. That means that the par-
ent of a given package is the package’s last prerequisite.
The output is in dot(1) directed graph format, and can be displayed or
printed using the dotty graph editor from the graphviz package. There
are no rpmgraph specific options, only common rpm options. See the
rpmgraph usage message for what is currently implemented.
