Which Package Needs Missing Deps?

pacman reports missing deps

# pacman -Dkk        
error: missing 'wine' dependency for 'playonlinux'
error: missing 'wine' dependency for 'wine-mono'
error: missing 'wine' dependency for 'winetricks'

What command will tell me which package needs those deps?

pacman -Qi package

doesn’t help.

# pacman -Qi playonlinux 
error: package 'playonlinux' was not found

It’s odd that pacman reports that playonlinux needs wine, but then says playonlinux wasn’t found.

pacman reports no orphans:
# pacman -Qtdq

Thx, but I’m not trying to install wine.

Got the answer from Arch forum.

“-Dk” means “check installed pkgs for missing deps.” Confirms your installs are good.

“-Dkk” means “check the repo for missing deps.” Confirms the repo is good (nothing to do with what you have installed).

I was doing -Dkk.
