I have a package
lm-sensors automatically installed on my Ubuntu 10.04, but can't find packages, that depend on it:
$ aptitude show lm-sensors Package: lm-sensors New: yes State: installed Automatically installed: yes Version: 1:3.1.2-2 Priority: extra Section: utils Maintainer: Ubuntu Developers <email@example.com> Uncompressed Size: 455k Depends: sed (>= 4.0.5-1), lsb-base (>= 3.2-13), libc6 (>= 2.3.4), libsensors4 (>= 1:3.1.1), perl Recommends: fancontrol Suggests: sensord, read-edid, i2c-tools Description: utilities to read temperature/voltage/fan sensors Lm-sensors is a hardware health monitoring package for Linux. It allows you to access information from temperature, voltage, and fan speed sensors. It works with most newer systems. This package contains programs to help you set up and read data from lm-sensors. Homepage: http://www.lm-sensors.org $ aptitude search ~Dlm-sensors p ksensors - lm-sensors frontend for KDE p sensord - hardware sensor information logging daemon p wmgtemp - Temperature sensor dockapp for Window Make p wmtemp - WM dock applet displaying lm_sensors tempe
No installed dependencies of lm-sensors can be found. Why is it still here then?
One more question: how do I search for a pattern in
$ sudo aptitude search ?depends(lm-sensors) bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('
what am I doing wrong here?
