Where can I check a rasbian package changelog?

Wed Jul 10, 2019 9:47 am

For ubuntu packages, you can browse to the site packages.ubuntu.com and after searching for your package you can go to see the changelog (such as this)

Where can I check for this information in raspbian? Also it would be needed to open issues for raspbian customized packages (such as openresolv).

Update: similar question here but it might have changed in the meantime

You have "packages.debian.com" which I use frequently, but of course it only contain the history for the packages that are identical in debian and raspbian.

So if you go to the page for a package for example: https://packages.debian.org/buster/libncurses5
and on the right side you have links to changelogs etc.

I find it unlikely that the foundation has similar structure on its more specific Raspbian changes, but you can report bugs here https://github.com/RPi-Distro/repo/issues I believe.
( there are separate tracker for firmware and kernel )

Or look at /usr/share/doc/$PACKAGENAME/changelog.gz

Hopefully RPT update that file on Raspbian as well or produce their own version.

Return to “Raspbian”
