PKG-CHECK(8)           DragonFly System Manager's Manual          PKG-CHECK(8)

NAME

pkg check - sanity check installed packages

SYNOPSIS

pkg check -B|-d|-s|-r [-nqvy] -a pkg check -B|-d|-s|-r [-nqvy] [-Cgix] pattern pkg check --{shlibs,dependencies,checksums,recompute} [--{dry-run,quiet,verbose,yes}] --all pkg check --{shlibs,dependencies,checksums,recompute} [--{dry-run,quiet,verbose,yes}] [--{case-sensitive,glob,case-insensitive,regex}] pattern

DESCRIPTION

pkg check -B or pkg check --shlibs regenerates the library dependency metadata for a package by extracting library requirement information from the binary ELF files in the package. pkg check -d or pkg check --dependencies checks for and installs missing dependencies. pkg check -r or pkg check --recompute recalculates and sets the checksums of installed packages. This command should only be used when the administrator has made modifications that invalidate a package checksum. Spontaneous checksum problems can indicate data or security problems. pkg check -s or pkg check --checksums detects installed packages with invalid checksums. An invalid checksum can be caused by data corruption or tampering.

OPTIONS

These options are supported by pkg check: -a, --all Process all packages. -C, --case-sensitive Use case sensitive standard or regular expression (-x) matching with pattern. -g, --glob Treat pattern as a shell glob pattern. -i, --case-insensitive Use case insensitive standard or regular expression (-x) matching with pattern. This is the default unless CASE_SENSITIVE_MATCH has been set to true in pkg.conf. -n, --dry-run Only check for missing dependencies, do not install them. -v, --verbose Be verbose. -q, --quiet Suppress most output, except for error messages and data that the command explicitly requests. This is primarily intended for scripting use. -x, --regex Treat pattern as a regular expression, using the "modern" or "extended" syntax described in re_format(7). -y, --yes Assume "yes" when asked for confirmation before installing missing dependencies.

ENVIRONMENT

These environment variables affect the execution of pkg check. See pkg.conf(5) for additional information. PKG_DBDIR CASE_SENSITIVE_MATCH

FILES

See pkg.conf(5).

EXAMPLES

Regenerate the library dependency metadata of all installed packages from the library information in each package's binary ELF files: pkg check -Ba Test for missing dependencies needed by nano, installing any that are missing: pkg check -d nano Test the checksums of all installed packages to make sure none are corrupted: pkg check -sa
