Didn't know about that. Interesting, that by default, /usr/lib/portage/bin/ is not in the PATH. I wonder why.

You could also use 'epm' an rpm workalike for Gentoo Linux
Install it :
Code:
emerge sync && emerge epm

List all installed packages :
Code:
epm -qa

Determine what package provides a file :
Code:
epm -qf /usr/bin/host
bind-tools-9.2.1

You think the solutions above are too slow? Try this -

Code:
find /var/db/pkg/ -mindepth 2 -maxdepth 2 -printf "%P\n"


If you prefer them wihtout the leading group, use %f instead of %P.

TIPS: Add this to you ~/.bashrc
Code:
alias listinstalled='find /var/db/pkg/ -mindepth 2 -maxdepth 2 -printf "%P\n"'

Save it and...
Code:
source ~/.bashrc

I continued to hack a little bit on that command and came up with this, called qportage. The idea is to be faster than qpkg.

To get this to work - paste it into a file, watch so you don't get a space after the EOF-line and append all lines separated by \.

EDIT:
New version has been added as an ebuild to Bugzilla, Bug#: 11637. Now support for listing files in installed ebuilds, colors and extra information (homepage and ebuild description).

-J

Code:
#!/bin/bash
# Copyright 2002 Jan Andersson
# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2

usage() {
  cat <<EOF
Tool to quickly list ebuilds in Gentoo.

qportage [options...] [filters...]

Parameters without option specifiers are filtering the output.

Options:
  -h       Show this help
  -i       List installed packages only
  -v       List and print all versions
  -g       Hide group name

Examples:

# qportage
List all available ebuilds.

# qportage -i dev
List everything installed that is dev-related.

# qportage -vig ^glib-
List available versions of glib.

# qportage quake doom
List available quake and doom packages.
EOF
}

TEMP=`getopt -o igvh --long help -n 'qportage' -- "$@"`

if [ $? != 0 ]
then
   exit 1
fi

eval set -- "$TEMP"
group=1

while true
do
   case "$1" in

Well, the post you quoted is over 3½ years old. IIRC, it was gone also in the later 2.0.x versions.

To get a quick list of installed packages:

eix -I >> installed_apps

If you keep your database updated (daily cronjob of update-eix), that will list everything REAL fast.

Also, you could also cat the file, and if you want,

eix -vI >> installed_apps

to give you a good listing of all your installed files with nice little descriptions of which you can then cat && grep through for a refrence from then on.

Enjoy.

P.S. You could run update_eix && eix -vI >> /path/to/file to keep an updated list handy. Personally, I drop those files in my /home/user dir, and then I can just cat from there. Makes things rahter quick :)

Awakening dead threads again?

Meanwhile there is "qlist -I". And since quite a while also eix doesn't need posprocessing for what you want:
Code:
eix -I --only-names

More necromancy!

If eix is installed (current version 0.23.10) then the following can be used:

Code:
eix-installed ALL

The resulting list is practically instantanious, but obviously this due the fact that eix uses a cache and therefore 'eix-update' will need to be run to keep this cache up-to-date.

best ... khay
