It seems I cannot find the answer to that one as easily as I have hoped. I have a package, and I suspect a change in one of the conf broke something in my tests.

For example, how can I get see the changes done on the file /etc/libapache2-mod-jk/workers.properties from the package libapache2-mod-jk?

What I am aiming for is the equivalent of git blame on files contained in a package.


From reading man apt-get, you could use the source pkg [{=pkg_version_number | /target_release}]... syntax to install the versions you want, then use recursive diff. See man apt-get;man diff

  • I was more looking for a way to determine that for a specific line, retrieve the last version that changed it. – glatapoui Oct 7 '16 at 21:34
