eopkg commands

Tue Jan 23, 2018 6:16 pm

Hi

I think it would be a nice addition to add a short section on the solus webpage (probably in the help center) about basic usage of eopkg. Well, there is always

Code: Select all

sudo eopkg --help 
but still, it would be nice to have some more verbose explanation (maybe even paired with a bit of information on how it internally works). Perhaps, this is already out there somewhere and I just could not find it. If that's case, I apologize.

I don't know what else could be added... all the commands are self documented !

Code: Select all

$ eopkg --help up
usage: Upgrade eopkg packages

Usage: Upgrade [<package1> <package2> ... <packagen>]

<packagei>: package name

Upgrades the entire system if no package names are given

You may use only package names to specify packages because
the package upgrade operation is defined only with respect
to repositories. If you have specified a package name, it
should exist in the package repositories. If you just want to
reinstall a package from a eopkg file, use the install command.

You can also specify components instead of package names, which will be
expanded to package names.


Options:
 --version                    : show program's version number and exit
 -h [--help]                  : show this help message and exit

  -b [--bypass-update-repo]   : Do not update repositories

  -f [--fetch-only]           : Fetch upgrades but do not install.

                                components whose basenames match any pattern
                                contained in file.
