Dependency check for package being ported

Looking to port a program from Debian and want to make sure I get all my dependencies right. But there is no real scale or database to work with. Below are the dependencies for my package... Any help making sure I cover all these would be greatly appreciated.

mono-runtime,
libmono-system-xaml4.0-cil,
libgtk2.0-cil-dev,
libwebkit1.1-cil,
libmono-system-web4.0-cil,
libmono-system-data-linq4.0-cil,
libmono-wcf3.0-cil

Re: Dependency check for package being ported

mono-runtime should be covered by the mono package from extra, but i have never heard of *-cil packages.

Does this program have a website / webpage / wiki ?

if so, please post some links.


Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Re: Dependency check for package being ported

Why don't you just try it and see how it goes? Blindly relying on a list of packages available .. IDK, but that sounds wrong.

Re: Dependency check for package being ported

I suspect most of those are in [extra]/mono.  Arch does not split packages endlessly as debian does.  You can verify each one, here is an example:

1) find the package at debian.org and look at the file list:
http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/all/l … l/filelist

2) use pkgfile on any of those files:

$ pkgfile /usr/lib/mono/4.0/System.Data.Linq.dll
extra/mono

3) Have a beer, and remember to buy one for the arch devs too, cause you're done.

Re: Dependency check for package being ported

Thanks everybody... I'll check out the link and try the pkgfile method of finding out if everything is already taken care of for dependencies.
