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


pkg set - modify information in the installed database


pkg set [-a] [-A 0|1] [-n oldname:newname] [-o oldorigin:neworigin] [-v 0|1] [-y] [-Cgix] pkg-name pkg set [--all] [--automatic 0|1] [--change-name oldname:newname] [--change-origin oldorigin:neworigin] [--yes] [-v 0|1] [--{case-sensitive,glob,case-insensitive,regex}] pkg-name


pkg set is used to modify information concerning installed packages. pkg set should always be used with caution.


The following options are supported by pkg set: -A 01, --automatic 01 Set automatic flag for the package: 0 is not automatic, 1 is automatic. This affects the operation of pkg-autoremove(8). -a, --all Match all installed packages. -C, --case-sensitive Make the standard or the regular expression (-x) matching against pkg-name case sensitive. -g, --glob Match pkg-name as a globbing expression. -i, --case-insensitive Make the standard or 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. -n oldname:newname, --change-name oldname:newname Change the package name of a given dependency from oldname to newname. -o oldorigin:neworigin, --change-origin oldorigin:neworigin Change the port origin of a given dependency from oldorigin to neworigin. This corresponds to the port directory that the package originated from. Typically, this is only needed for upgrading a library or package that has MOVED or when the default version of a major port dependency changes. (DEPRECATED) Usually this will be explained in /usr/dports/UPDATING. Also see pkg-updating(8) and EXAMPLES. -x, --regex Match pkg-name as a regular expression according to the "modern" or "extended" syntax of re_format(7). -v 01 Set or unset the "vital" flag on the target package(s). Set to 0 to disable the "vital" flag, and 1 to enable it. -y, --yes Assume yes rather than asking for confirmation before modifying package information. If neither the -g nor -x options are used, the default is to match pkg- name exactly.


See pkg.conf(5).


Change a package from automatic to non-automatic, which will prevent autoremove from removing it: % pkg set -A 0 perl-5.14 Change a package from non-automatic to automatic, which will make autoremove allow it be removed once nothing depends on it: % pkg set -A 1 perl-5.14


The following environment variables affect the execution of pkg set. See pkg.conf(5) for further description. CASE_SENSITIVE_MATCH
