How can I get, not the dependencies of a package, but the packages that are depending on a certain package?
I'm on debian 6.0 Squeeze-LTS (the first-time extension to squeeze for long term support!) for my web server, and it reports that support has ended for a certain package:
Unfortunately, it has been necessary to limit security support for some packages. The following packages found on this system are affected by this: * Source:libplrpc-perl, ended on 2014-05-31 at version 0.2020-2 Details: Not supported in squeeze LTS Affected binary package: - libplrpc-perl (installed version: 0.2020-2)
I don't really want to try to uninstall that binary package without seeing what depends on it, and it's description describes stuff that I've never heard of before:
libplrpc-perl: Perl extensions for writing PlRPC servers and clients
So I'd be fine with just removing the package if possible, but want to determine the things that depend on it before doing so.
