Lintian Reports

W dbg-package-missing-depends

All reports of dbg-package-missing-depends for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The given binary package has a name of the form of "X-dbg", indicating it contains detached debugging symbols for the package X. If so, it should depend on the corresponding package, generally with (= ${binary:Version}) since the debugging symbols are only useful with the binaries created by the same build.

Note that the package being depended upon cannot be "Architecture: all".

If this package provides debugging symbols for multiple other packages, it should normally depend on all of those packages as alternatives. In other words, pkga (= ${binary:Version}) | pkgb (= ${binary:Version}) and so forth.

Severity: normal, Certainty: certain

Check: fields, Type: binary, udeb, source
