Package:Eix

305 bytes added, 5 years ago
moved over examples from kernel page - danielv
<console>###i## eix foo </console>
This will give you a fairly verbose list of packages containing the term 'foo' in their name. It gives you information about which versions are available, whether they are stable, current or live, a description of the package and a list of the USE flags '''for all the packages combined''' - sometimes different versions of packages have different USE flags so you may need to check which a specific package contains with equery.
 
To see a brief listing of available kernels, do this command<br/>
<console>
###i## # eix -# sys-kernel/
</console>
 
or for more detail<br/>
<console>
###i## # eix -c sys-kernel/
</console>
 
Let's say you want to look at sys-kernel/genkernel<br/>
<console>
###i## # eix sys-kernel/genkernel/
</console>
