Well, some packages are installed by my explicit request. These packages are listed in
But there are packages installed because they required by some of these explicitly installed packages.
Let's say I found out that some package
aaa/bbb-1.2.3 is installed on my system. It's not in the
world set. So there must be one or several packages in the
world set which require (may be indirectly) the
aaa/bbb package. How can I find out what are these packages? As a bonus I want to be able to understand why is is version
1.2.3 which is installed.
equery (d)epends command (installed by
app-portage/gentoolkit package) can "list all packages directly depending on ATOM". But it's quite far from what I need.
