Re: [opensuse-packaging] How to find out which dependency installed a package?

horde5-content has conflicts for SLES11 because it prefers php53 but
something forced "php5" to be installed. How can I find out which
package(s) in the dependency tree forced this?

You can try "rpm -q --whatrequires php5" from within the build chroot.

Yes, one can try this and that until one ends up in madness... ;-)

Only "rpm -e --test package" shows the full truth which other
package(s) require package, see my English excerpt in
