DESCRIPTION

pakfire is the command that controls the IPFire Package Management system.

OPTIONS

--version

Prints the software version and exits.

--config FILE
-c FILE

Load a custom configuration file. See pakfire-conf(5) for more details.

--enable-repo REPO
--disable-repo REPO

Enables/disables a repository that is disabled/enabled in the configuration.

--offline

Enable offline mode. Pakfire will not try to refresh any repository information or perform any file downloads.

--arch ARCH

Run Pakfire for a different architecture. This might run emulation which has degraded performance.

--root PATH

Run Pakfire in a different path. This is useful when you want to setup, debug, or fix a different system. Can be used in combination with --arch.

COMMANDS

check

This command checks the integrity of the installation. If any errors are returned they can be fixed with the sync command.

clean

Cleans all temporary and downloaded files.

execute [--bind PATH] [--non-interactive] COMMAND

Executes a command inside a Pakfire environment (useful in combination with --root= and --arch=).
--non-interactive makes the shell non-interactive and using --bind parts of the local file system can be made available inside the environment.

info [--long]┬áPACKAGE [PACKAGE …]

Shows information about the given package. --long will show additional information.

install [--without-recommended] [--allow-uninstall] [--allow-downgrade] PACKAGE [PACKAGE …]

Installs one or more packages.
By default, Pakfire installs packages that are recommended for use with the installed set of packages. This can be disabled with --without-recommended.
If the package cannot be installed due to dependency problems, the solver can be allowed to allow uninstalling other packages (--allow-uninstall) or to downgrade already installed packages (--allow-downgrade).

key

TODO

provides [FEATURE]

Shows a list of packages that provide a certain feature.

requires [FEATURE]

This shows a list of all packages that require a certain feature. The operating is basically the opposite of provides.

remove [--keep-dependencies] PACKAGE [PACKAGE …]

Uninstalls the given package and all dependencies that are no longer needed. Those can be kept using the --keep-dependencies switch.

repolist

Shows information about all available repositories and their configuration.

search PATTERN

Searches for packages that match PATTERN. Globbing can be used.

sync [--keep-orphaned]

Synchronises the local system with the upstream repositories. All packages will be updated to their latest version and orphaned packages will be uninstalled. --keep-orphaned disables this behaviour.

update [--exclude PATTERN|-x PATTERN] [--allow-uninstall] [--allow-downgrade] [PACKAGE …]

Updates all installed packages to their latest versions. If packages are passed, only those and their dependencies will be updated.
Using --exclude or -x allows excluding one or more packages that won’t be updated.
See install on --allow-uninstall and --allow-downgrade.
