Graeme, I know but I would like to have exacty the reverse: a list of
packages that depend on the package at hand.
bitbake -g gives all packages a package depends on, but I would like
to have a list of packages that depend on a specific package.
so e.g. I want to get a list of packages that depend on libxml (and
bitbake -g libxml gives me the packages libxml depends on).
I hope that clarifies my question.
