[FreeBSD] Setting up pkgng - BSD
Amzo
Pkg 1.0 is out now! The betas and RCs are over, say hello to the first release!


You may, or may not have heard of the introduction of FreeBSD's new package manager, which is a huge improvement of the old pkg-* tools.

What is pkgng?

Quote:pkgng is:

a replacement for pkg_* tools
a tool to query/manage installed packages
a tool to deal with binary packages
a tool to upgrade/install packages from a remote repository
a library that provides all the package management in a safe way so one can write a new frontend

INSTALLING:

To install pkgng, you can install directly from the ports tree:

Code:
cd /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/pkg; make install clean

Once installed, you'll need to setup the config.

Code:
mv /usr/local/etc/pkg.conf.sample /usr/local/etc/pkg.conf

the config won't need any editing, it already has a repo setup for it now.

REPO UPDATE:

To update the repo.

PHP Code:
pkg update 

If you've been installing from ports or using the old pkg-* tools. You should register all installed packages in the new database.

PACKAGE REGISTRATION:

Code:
sudo /usr/local/sbin/pkg2ng

This may take awhile depending on how many packages you have installed.

PACKAGE SEARCHING:

Code:
pkg search packagesname

PHP Code:
[amzo@Bahamut ~]$ pkg search slim

READING PKGUPDATING:

It is still recommended to read updating when upgrading ports, to solve issues.

I removed loads of package names from the list, the size needed to download is correct. :p

I also book marked and will use a bit later! Thanks!

I don't have a "pkg" directory under /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/
When I cd /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/pkg
I get an error: "No such file or directory."

I'm using FreeBSD 9 RELEASE

What dumb mistake am I making?
Someone doesn't appreciate my php generated image!

Did you run a:

portsnap fetch extract?

Did you type everything perfectly? Happens to me where I'll type the name of something but forget a hyphen or something silly like that.

Nope... I have no "pkg" subdirectory under "/usr/ports/ports-mgmt/"

then... you haven't updated your local ports tree

portsnap fetch update
or if you've never done it before, more likely
portsnap fetch extract

Since I haven't seen it mentioned already, you're going to have problems with whatever tool you're used to using for compiling and upgrading ports (for me it was portmaster) unless you

cd /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/portmaster
make deinstall clean
make config
make install

and enable the PKGNG patch in the config step.
