|CHECK-PROBLEMS(1)||General Commands Manual||CHECK-PROBLEMS(1)|
check-problemsis used to check a collection of packages for problems that cannot be noticed in individual packages, such as conflict and directory registration issues.
A conflict is a file that belongs to two distinct packages.
By default, packages with the same stem (see
are registered to conflict. This can be changed to add or remove extra
conflict registration with
Conflicts between packages mean that a user can't have both packages installed at the same time. In some cases (same software, different version), this is expected, but the packages should be marked as conflicting, so that pkg_add(1) knows how to deal with it. In other cases, this is an oversight from the ports maintainer, and action should be taken to make sure both packages can be installed simultaneously. Conflicts also interact with dependencies, and sometimes a missing dependency will show up as an unregistered conflict.
Directories can belong to distinct packages, as long as they are registered somewhere. Every directory that is not part of the standard mtree(8) set should appear in a packing-list somewhere.
Contrary to files, directories can be shared between several packages.
check-problems knows enough about packages
to trace directories back to a common dependency, or to not flag two
packages as conflicting when they depend on already conflicting
check-problems requires a set of
packing-lists to operate, which it can obtain from several sources. The
preferred source is the packing-list databases (see
as it persists over time and can be used to fix update information as well
as current version information.
It should be supplemented with the ports tree itself in order to figure out current versions.
Options are as follows:
is also used, traverse only the directories corresponding to the
packages under plist-dir to figure out current
pkgnames, and annotate those with a ‘!’ in the report.
