Gentoolkit is a collection of tools used by Gentoo Linux to administer and develop the Portage package management system. The tools are managed and installed by Portage itself. Funtoo Linux offer this package as part of stage3.

The tools are split into two related packages: gentoolkit and gentoolkit-dev. As with the rest of Portage they are written in Python.

Gentoolkit provides:

  • eclean
  • enalyze
  • equery
  • eread
  • euse
  • glsa-check
  • revdep-rebuild

equery

Equery is a tool that displays information about the installed packages on the system. equery is based on a system of modules, , running it with out arguments displays a list of options

# equery

equery b

Running equery with the b flag is useful to determine which package a file comes from.

# equery b /usr/lib/libpam.so
 * Searching for /usr/lib/libpam.so ... 
sys-libs/pam-1.1.8-r2 (/usr/lib64/libpam.so)

equery f

Running equery with the f flag is useful to show all installed files from a package.

# equery f domination
 * Searching for domination ...
 * Contents of games-board/domination-1.1.1.5:
/usr
/usr/games
/usr/games/bin
/usr/games/bin/domination
...

glsa-check

Glsa-check shows what potential vulnerabilities your system has.

# glsa-check -l
[A] means this GLSA was marked as applied (injected),
[U] means the system is not affected and
[N] indicates that the system might be affected.
