QUICKPKG

Section: Portage (1)
Updated: Dec 2012

NAME

quickpkg - creates portage packages  

SYNOPSIS

quickpkg [options] <list of packages or package-sets>  

DESCRIPTION

quickpkg can be utilized to quickly create a package for portage by utilizing the files already on your filesystem. This package then can be emerged on any system. To review syntax for emerging binary packages, review emerge(1). The upside of this process is that you don't have to wait for the package to unpack, configure, compile, and install before you can have the package ready to go. The downside is that the package will contain the files that exist on your filesystem even if they have modified since they were first installed.
The packages, after being created, will be placed in PKGDIR. This variable is defined in make.conf(5) and defaults to /usr/portage/packages.  

OPTIONS

<list of packages or package-sets>
Each package in the list can be of two forms. First you can give it the full path to the installed entry in the virtual database. That is, /var/db/pkg/<CATEGORY>/<PKG-VERSION>/. The second form is a portage depend atom or a portage package set. The atom or set is of the same form that you would give emerge if you wanted to emerge something. See ebuild(5) for full definition.
--ignore-default-opts
Causes the QUICKPKG_DEFAULT_OPTS environment variable to be ignored.
--include-config < y | n >
Include all files protected by CONFIG_PROTECT (as a security precaution, default is 'n').
--include-unmodified-config < y | n >
Include files protected by CONFIG_PROTECT that have not been modified since installation (as a security precaution, default is 'n').
--umask=UMASK
The umask used during package creation (default is 0077).
 

EXAMPLES

quickpkg /var/db/pkg/dev-python/pyogg-1.1
quickpkg planeshift
quickpkg =apache-1.3.27-r1
quickpkg =net-www/apache-2*
quickpkg @system
