Control of dependencies for Macports

Reported by: mcklaren@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: base Version: 1.6.0
Keywords: Cc:


Macports should has a better control of dependencies when we like uninstall a program. For example if i like install the packages foo, i do sudo port install foo and automaticly install all dependencies necesary for the package perfect but if Do i like uninstall the packages ? sudo port uninstall foo only deinstall foo but i before in the install foo to installed B,C,D macports should deinstall (for example with the option sudo port uninstall --with-unused-dependencies foo) B,C,D always that this dependencies isn't used by other packages. With this option we can have a system very clean of unused dependencies.

I think that this option it can add in futures version of macports if is possible. Thank you very much.
