I've released new release of pkgnih, package manager for pkgsrc.
For now it handles packages using binary repositories only, that is
pkg_summary(5) provided by bulk build software.
Initial announcement and some details about my plans are here
Package: wip/pkgnih (for numbered releases)
wip/pkgnih-current (for development version)
Major changes in this release:
Fix in generating an "update plan".
Command "nih info" was added. It shows an information about packages
in the repository or about installed packages. See a manual page for
Unless NO_SUMMARY_COPY variable is set in configuration file,
downloaded pkg_summary.txt and SHA512.txt files are copied to
"pkg_summary_YYYYMMDD_hhmm.txt" and "SHA512_YYYYMMDD_hhmm.txt"
respectively, thus allowing to restore and use them in the future.
Unless NO_INSTALLED_COPY variable is set in configuration file,
~/.nih/installed_YYYYMMDD_hhmm.txt file containing a list of
installed packages before removal/installation is created thus
allowing to restore the previus state of the system.
- New option -i was added that takes into account
- Option -z has been replaced with -I. By default, pkg_summary.txt
is analysed, not installed packages just like in "nih search"
and "nih info".
"nih verify", "nih status -s" and other commands that don't require
pkg_summary.txt now work normally without "nih refresh" and even
without binary repository (without pkg_summary.txt) at all. Thanks
to Andrey N. Oktyabrski for pointing out about these problem.
yes_* variables were introduced in config file for always answering
"Yes" to particular questions.
fix: "nih search -r" without -3|-9 options doesn't fail with strange
error messages anymore.
Minor fixes in nih.conf
Best regards, Aleksey Cheusov.
