Getting started with emerge

Emerge is the front-end for funtoo's Portage package manager. With emerge it is easy to install, update or remove packages.

Update Package Database

Sync local package database. This will update your local Portage tree with the latest Funtoo ebuilds.

# emerge --sync

Search packages

Search packages by name.

# emerge -s firefox
# emerge --search firefox

Search packages by description.

# emerge -S web browser
# emerge --searchdesc web browser

Install packages

Install package.

# emerge firefox

Install multiple packages.

# emerge firefox thunderbird

Install package. Ask for confirmation before performing any changes. Show verbose output.

# emerge -av firefox
# emerge --ask firefox

Remove packages

Remove package.

# emerge -C firefox
# emerge --unmerge firefox

Remove package. Ask for confirmation before performing any changes.

# emerge -aC firefox

Remove orphaned packages. Ask for confirmation before performing any changes.

# emerge -a --depclean

Update packages

Update all packages.

# emerge -uDN @world

Update all packages. Ask for confirmation before performing any changes. Show verbose output.

# emerge -uavDN @world

When upgrading to a new version of perl, it is necessary to also run perl-cleaner afterwards:

# emerge -auvDN @world
# perl-cleaner --all
Note

This requirement of running perl-cleaner will eventually go away, once all perl-related ebuilds are updated to EAPI 5. EAPI 5 is a version of the Ebuild specification that supports smart updating of perl-related bits.
