Hello everybody!

Eix now has its own wiki where it's explained in detail so I don't have to do this here.

Download info:
Project page: http://sourceforge.net/projects/eix
Wiki: http://eixwiki.unfoog.de

Current version in portage: 0.2.2

Changelog for 0.1.3:

*** 0.1.3 (2004/01/17)
- Fixed bug: multiple spaces in PORTDIR_OVERLAY (/etc/make.conf) were interpreted as / overlays
- Fixed: Version numbers should finally be sorted properly. Explanation: In 0.1.2 versions were only splitted in [primary, e.g. | 1.2.3][suffix | _alpha5][gentoo-release | -r2] Now, the primary string is also splitted into integers => 2.6.2 < 2.6.10
- Added more detail to the error messages in version.cc (in hopes to resolve kay's problem)

Download info:
EBuild: http://eix.sourceforge.net/eix-0.1.3.ebuild.tar.bz2
Distfile: http://www.schokokeks.org/~wolfgang/eix-0.1.3.tar.bz2

Add: eix-0.1.2 is in portage now! 0.1.3 should follow soon.

8O Great program! This should be the default for Portage!

wow.

edit: if you think my system is slow for searching standard way, (i dont know what usual speeds are), I'm running an xp 3000+ with 1 gig ddr 400. I have a 8mb cache 80gb drive i'm running Reiser4 on. (fastest FS i've ever used. It did speed up portage greatly IMHO.)

My hdparm:

Code:

larrydacow folding # hdparm -tT /dev/hdd

/dev/hdd:
 Timing cached reads:   1816 MB in  2.00 seconds = 906.78 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads:  138 MB in  3.01 seconds =  45.85 MB/sec


I really like this program and it WILL be used a LOT.

Looking better every release.

Unfortunately overlay support doesn't work for package versions in PORTDIR_OVERLAY but not in PORTDIR.

How does it compare to esearch?

If I could do without the esync/eupdatedb soup (which is very very long), I would switch right away :D

I have found a bug, while indexing my /usr/local/portage I get

Did you make up your own category? It should exist in /usr/portage/profiles/categories, or you can add your own in /etc/portage/categories

Can eix search for reverse dependencies?
ie. can it do "equery d <package>"

I'll add support for /etc/portage/categories. Then this shouldn't be a problem any longer.

Regarding the bug pythonhead discovered: Unfortunately I can't reproduce it. Did anyone experience the same problem?

Just to be clear, in case anyone else can verify it, this works fine,
when I have the same version in PORTDIR and PORTDIR_OVERLAY:
/usr/portage/app-foo/pkg/pkg-1.0.ebuild
/usr/local/portage/app-foo/pkg/pkg-1.0.ebuild

However if I only have:

/usr/local/portage/app-foo/pkg/pkg-2.0.ebuild

with no 2.0 version in PORTDIR, eix doesn't find PORTDIR_OVERLAY version 2.0.

I think I narrowed down the overlay problem:

eix only recognizes double quotes in make.conf

This works:
Code:
PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/usr/local/portage"


These two are valid for portage but fail with eix:
Code:
PORTDIR_OVERLAY='/usr/local/portage'
PORTDIR_OVERLAY=/usr/local/portage

Thanks a lot for your debugging! I've enhanced the make.conf parser. It does interpret multi-line variables and variables without quotation marks correctly now.

User-defined categories in /etc/portage/categories now are recognized.

Here's the new version 0.1.4:

EBuild: http://eix.sf.net/eix-0.1.4.ebuild.tar.bz2
Distfile: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/eix/eix-0.1.4.tar.bz2?download

Installation of the ebuild:
Code:
tar xfvj eix-0.1.4.ebuild.tar.bz2 -C /usr/local/portage


Change log relative to 0.1.3:
Code:
*** 0.1.4 (2004/01/22)

- added: multi-line entries in ebuild and/or /etc/make.conf are parsed
variables declared without double quotation marks are recognized correctly as well as tab characters in PORTDIR_OVERLAY

- versions which are not tested on your architecture are now shown by default (previously: only with -v). I changed the prefix for such versions from [M~] to [-]
   
- cleaned the command line parser and implemented the quasi-standard getops() function which is used by almost any linux program
 eix -s ist now default, so you can simply type "eix REGEXP" to search for packages.
(author: appro)


The new syntax:
eix now understands parameters like most unix programs, i.e. you update the database with eix -u. no parameter, for example
Code:
eix gcc
assumes -s and searches for a package. You can use multiple options after one - now, e.g. eix -nvS gcc.

comment to dfy's bug report:
Quote:
*** glibc detected *** double free or corruption (fasttop): 0x08214db0 ***

sorry, i couldn't find out what's causing this. i'll add more detailed error messages in the next version.

federico: thanks for the report. it is corrected now: eix reads /etc/portage/categories.

Well, on the searching part, I disagree:
Code:
# time eix s eix

     Available versions:  ~0.1.2  ~0.1.3
     Installed:           0.1.3
     Homepage:            http://sourceforge.net/projects/eix

real    0m1.171s
user    0m0.476s
sys     0m0.059s
Still, nothing beats this:
Code:
# time ls /usr/portage/*/*eix* -d
/usr/portage/app-portage/eix  /usr/portage/distfiles/eix-0.1.3.tar.bz2

real    0m0.167s
user    0m0.019s
sys     0m0.023s
:P
But for updating the database, there's no comparaisons. I wont do the time with eupdatedb because it monopolizes the CPU far too long.

So, I guess I can afford waiting 2 more seconds for the price of a fast database update :D

uh, where's the esearch database located (so I can delete it)?

A manpage is coming soon. For usage information please use

Code:
bash-2.05b$ eix -h

Usage: eix [options] [command] <search strings>
Options:  -n, --nocolor      Do not use ANSI color codes
          -c, --compact      Compact search results
          -v, --verbose      Verbose search results
Commands: -u, --update       Updates the database in /var/cache/eix
          -s, --search       Search for ebuilds (posix regex) (default command)
          -S, --searchdesc   Search for ebuilds + descriptions (posix regex)


until then.

These are the versions of gcc 3.2.3-r1 and glibc 2.3.2-r3.

I emerge eix on another system which has gcc 3.3.4-r1 and glibc 2.3.4.20040808-r1

If you have another solution of emerging gcc 3.3.4, it could be great.

Thanks

It's already in the portage with this feature. http://eix.sf.net/ChangeLog
You have to define custom categories in /etc/portage/categories according to the portage manual.

eix is currently masked "~x86" only. I just installed it on my PPC and can confirm it compiles here too. So a "~ppc" can be added at least :-)

But it has a problem during runtime which doesn't happen with x86.

Do you need any more informations?

BTW: Since a reverse dependency search isn't included, is this feature planed?
