ALTERNATIVE and RDEPENDS


Konrad Weihmann <kweihmann@...>
 

Hi all,

is there a way to set the package metadata in a way that it would require one of the packages providing a tool via the ALTERNATIVE_ mechanism?

E.g. sed for instance could be provided by busybox (if enabled in config) or by the standalone sed recipe - within my recipe I would just want to make sure that any of the providing packages is available/used when assembling the image.

This basically affects all of the tools that are provided by coreutils and busybox too

I would be happy about any pointer...

Regards
Konrad
