pkg lock, pkg unlock - lock or unlock packages

pkg lock is used to lock packages against reinstallation, modification or deletion. pkg unlock unlocks the named packages. Either variant only has an effect on currently installed packages. Consequently it is impossible to block installation of a new package by using this mechanism, unless such an installation implies updating a locked package. The impact of locking a package is wider than simply preventing modifications to the package itself. Any operation implying modification of the locked package will be blocked. This includes: * Attempts to reinstall, up- or downgrade or delete the locked package itself. * Installation, up- or downgrade of a package where the resultant package would have a dependency on a different version of the locked package. * Deletion, up- or downgrade of any package the locked package depends upon, either directly or as a consequence of installing or upgrading some third package.


The following options are supported by pkg lock: -a, ---all Lock or unlock all installed packages. -C, --case-sensitive Make the standard or the regular expression (-x) matching against pkg-name case sensitive. -g, --glob Treat pkg-name as a shell glob pattern. -i, --case-insensitive Make the standard or the regular expression (-x) matching against pkg-name case insensitive. This is the default, unless modified by setting CASE_SENSITIVE_MATCH to true in pkg.conf. -l, --show-locked Show a list of all locked packages. This can be used without locking or unlocking any packages, in which case privileged access to the package database is not required. Otherwise it will be displayed after any lock or unlock operations. -q, --quiet Operate quietly: do not output anything other than confirmatory questions. -x, --regex Treat pkg-name as a regular expression according to the "modern" or "extended" syntax of re_format(7). -y, --yes Assume "yes" as the answer to all questions. --has-locked-packages Return 0 if at least one package is locked, 1 otherwise


The following environment variables affect the execution of pkg lock. See pkg.conf(5) for further description. PKG_DBDIR DEFAULT_ALWAYS_YES ASSUME_ALWAYS_YES CASE_SENSITIVE_MATCH


See pkg.conf(5).
