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; on a Funtoo Linux system one can install gentoolkit by issuing the following command:

# emerge gentoolkit

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.
