is it possible to output also the version (and architecture) of a pkg when
doing a search?
For example this command shows the version of the installed pkg:
# dpkg -l | grep -i lxc
ii lxc 1:1.0.6-6 amd64 Linux Containers userspace tools
But aptitude search unfortunately doesn't show any version number:
# aptitude -V -t testing search lxc
i lxc - Linux Containers userspace tools
Or did I miss a program switch?
this is for manual checking if a newer version of the pkg is available at the
Btw, to keep the standard output compatible, this new output format should
maybe be done via a new program switch...
