Packages shall have a dependency that indicates which LSB modules are required. LSB module descriptions are dash seperated tuples containing the name 'lsb', the module name, and the architecture name. The following dependencies may be used.
This dependency is used to indicate that the application is dependent on features contained in the LSB-Core specification.
This dependency is used to indicate that the application is dependent on features contained in the LSB-Core specification and that the package does not contain any architecture specific files.
These dependencies shall have a version of 3.0.
Packages shall not depend on other system-provided dependencies. They shall not depend on non-system-provided dependencies unless those dependencies are fulfilled by packages which are part of the same application. A package may only provide a virtual package name which is registered to that application.
Other modules in the LSB may supplement this list. The architecture specific dependencies are described in the relevant architecture specific LSB.
