Hi,

How can I see which ports depend on
libgmp-4.1.4_1?

If I upgrade it, the applications that are using
the old libgmp would be affected?

Thanks...

Efren Bravo.

If you go into /var/db/pkg/libgmp-4.1.4_1 you'll see a file called +REQUIRED_BY. Read it (cat "+REQUIRED_BY") to see which ports require libgmp.

You usually do not have to rebuild those ports unless there was a major change in the library. It's up to you to know if you need to rebuild them or not.

Nicolas.

This is a question i've had for a while, so this ("+REQUIRED_BY") checks what depends on libgmp, how do you check what libgmp depends on?


pkg_info?

     -r      Show the list of packages on which each package depends.

-R Show the list of installed packages which require each package.

Also I've found portmanager copes pretty well with most dependencies.
