33     <title>What is Gentoolkit?</title>
34     <body>
35    
36     <p>
37     Gentoo is a unique distribution, and presents some complexities that simply
38     don't exist for other distributions. As Gentoo developers and contributors
39     discovered some of these complexities, they also wrote tools to help users and
40     administrators work around them. Many of these tools have been contributed to
41     the Gentoo project, and are included in the package
42     <c>app-portage/gentoolkit</c>.
43     </p>
44    
45     <p>
46     Gentoolkit contains a whole bunch of useful tools to help manage Portage and the
47     ebuild architecture. Most users -- particularly those who update systems often
48     -- will benefit from having gentoolkit installed.

55     <title>Installation</title>
56     <body>
57    
58     <p>
59     Just as with any Gentoo package, installation is just a simple emerge.
60     </p>
61    
62     <pre>
63     # <i>emerge gentoolkit </i>
64     </pre>
65    
66     <note>
67     Many of the tools in gentoolkit reveal important information about your system
68     or require root permissions. For that reason, some of the programs may only be
69     executed (or only function properly) if run by a user with root permissions.

76     <title>Finding Documentation</title>
77     <body>
78    
79     <p>
80     At the time of this writing, not all of the programs in gentoolkit are well
81     documented. Some have man pages, but not all. Any documentation
82     that a program might have (other than man pages) is stored in
83     <path>/usr/doc/gentoolkit-[version]/[program-name]/</path>.

92 cam 1.9 <title>Introduction</title>
93     <body>
94     <p><c>qpkg</c> is flexible tool for determining information about ebuilds,
95     whether installed or not. It can provide information about what files belong
96     to which ebuilds, whether multiple versions of the same package are installed,
97     and what a particular ebuild does.
98     </p>
99     <p>Calling <c>qpkg</c> with no arguments prints a list of all ebuilds, with asterisks
100     (*) next to the packages that are installed on the system.
101     </p>
102     <note>By default, <c>qpkg</c> prints output in color. To turn this off on the command
103     line, use the <c>--no-color</c> or <c>-nc</c> flag.</note>

108     <title>Querying Package Information</title>
109     <body>
110     <p>One of the most common uses for <c>qpkg</c> is determining what a given package
111     is. For instance, while looking through <path>net-misc</path>, I saw a package
112     called <path>neon</path>. Having no idea what it was, I ran qpkg.

202     <p>
203     Sometimes multiple versions of the same package may exist. <c>qpkg --dup</c>
204    
205     will print a list of duplicate packages. The existence of a duplicate package
206     though may not indicate that the older version may be removed. They may fill
207     different slots. To look for duplicates in the same slot, use
208     <c>qpkg --dups --slot</c>. I just updated KDE from 3.0 to 3.0.2, so I have some
209     duplicates in the same slot.

233     <p>
234     Sometimes it is useful to check a package's integrity to know that files
235     have not been replaced since they were installed. <c>qpkg</c> can
236     verify md5 sums as well as install times to indicate whether or not files
237     for the package might have been corrupted, replaced, or removed.
238     </p>
239     <p>To check both mtimes and md5 sums, use the <c>-c</c> flag.</p>

275     reports that many of the files from the older version have been changed since I
