apt-cudf - CUDF solver integration for APT




apt-cudf translates back and forth among a CUDF-based dependency solver and the protocol used by APT to talk with external dependency solvers. apt-cudf therefore allows one to use any CUDF solver as an external solver for APT. apt-cudf relies on its "argv[0]" name to find the CUDF solver to invoke. In common setups, you should have a CUDF solver specification file under /usr/share/cudf/solvers/ for each installed CUDF solver. To use one such solver with APT, you should create a symbolic link pointing to /usr/bin/apt-cudf under /usr/lib/apt/solvers/ and call it with the name of the CUDF solver you want to use.


-v --verbose Print debugging information during operation. Can be repeated. -h --help Show usage information and exit. --version Show program's version and exit. --dump Dump the cudf universe and solution --noop Dump the cudf universe and solution and exit. This is useful to generate a cudf universe from a edsp file --conf Use a configuration file. Default in /etc/apt-cudf.conf -s <solver> --solver <solver> Specify the external solver to use. -e --explain Print a human-readable summary of the solution. --native-arch Speficy the native architecture to be used in the edsp -> cudf translation. By default apt-cudf uses apt-config to deduce the native architecture. This option is useful if the edsp was generated on a machine with a different architecture. --foreign-archs A comma-separated list of foreign architectures to be used in the edsp -> cudf translation
