rdebsums - a recursive debsums
rdebsums --help | [ debsum options ] [ --others ] package
rdebsums runs debsums(1) over a given package and all its dependencies. It can be used to make sure a problem with a package is not due to file corruption. All but the last element of the command-line and options understood by rdebsums are sent to debsums(1).
--help Prints a short help text --others Also runs debsums on Recommended and Suggested packages.
Check the package aptitude and all its dependencies: rdebsums aptitude The same while being significantly less verbose rdebsums -s aptitude
rdebsums is quite slow - essentially due to dpkg-query not being extremely fast. Currently, rdebsums will be confused by virtual packages. --others is actually nearly useless, as you often end up checking nearly all packages. You'll most probably win time by running debsums without arguments.
