Hmm, just noted that I have a /etc/dispatch-conf.conf and /usr/lib/portage/bin/dispatch-conf on my system and qpkg says it belongs to portage.

And I forgot to mention that there is bug 24852 for the app-portage category (maybe someone should remind seemant about it :lol: )

The version in portage does not use an RCS repository like the one on http://www.blorf.net/dispatch-conf/ but a simple backup directory. There are also some minor differences in the shortcuts, etc.

A few new utilities were added. I'm putting the newest additions to the top now.

I've been considering making an ebuild that downloads one tarball with all these utilities. Sort of an un-official gentoolkit 2. The only thing that has kept me from doing it is getting all the author's permissions and figuring out which license goes with which utility.

If you're an author of one of the listed utilities and you wouldn't mind your code included in an ebuild, please let me know. If you don't mention the license in your code, website or in the post, please let me know via private message.

A problem is that it's hard to find all the tools. Took a while till I found ecat for instance, and just discovered qpgk. It's great to have all the features, but what use are they if they are hidden? Gentoolkit has not even a manual page, so you have no clue what you actually have after emerging it. An easy to find man page or website describing the tools would be nice.

All the ones in portage are now in app-portage, so thats a good start. Some of the programs in gentoolkit have man pages, the ones you mentioned for instance (qpkg, etcat).

Yes, they have, but the problem is finding out that you have the program at all. app-portage is a good start yes, but still I can't find any info about gentoolkit for instance, and the describtion doesn't tell much either. If you put all tools seperately in app-portage with a good describtion then that's good, but if you bundle them into something like gentoolkit without giving any information, not even the programs' names, then you only hide them and I start to complain.

There is a new utility called cfg-update, not to be confused with cfg_update. Both are alternates for etc-update:

Latest addition:

emerge-uri.sh generates a list from emerge -pf on a computer with no net connection. download-uri.sh downloads the packages for you on a computer with a connection to the ineternet.

portlog-info is a small bash script that can parse content of your /var/log/portage (or whatever else is defined as PORT_LOGDIR in /etc/make.conf) to retrieve different kind of messages (einfo, emerge errors, etc.) in per-package emerge logs. It can also be used to bump this must-read thread.

porthole is a GTK2 front-end for portage. It uses the code from gportage which is a nice portage browser.

Just stumbled upon this thread by accident; it's quite nice! I'll have to try some of these little apps!

I'm glad Porthole is already on the list! Very nice and up-to-date!
One insignificant note though: it was also partially based on a project called gtkportage, from which the glade file for the Porthole interface was derived, as well as some other code when Fredrik and I merged our codebases. This is left out of the readme though... :roll:
<whisper>Don't tell anyone, but there's a new version coming out in a few days!</whisper> :)

according to the mods this goes here, tho i didnt think of it as a utility, sorry :O

anyhow these patches add a simple syntax to emerge for filtering a package out of world/system on a per-run basic, used as:

Code:
emerge -up world ^package-to-ignore ^another-package-to-ignore


this patch should apply on 2.0.49-:

http://www.mastergoon.com/files/emerge-exclude.patch

and this one on 2.0.50-:

http://www.mastergoon.com/files/emerge-exclude-2.0.50.patch

No, I wouldn't call it a utility either, and I'd rather not clog up this thread with things that aren't utilities (i.e. that don't require their own ebuilds), however...
Make sure you post the patch to this bug. Certainly something that would be of use to everyone.
Also, I note that it doesn't work for package updates where the package being updated is not in the world file but is a dep of another package (when doing a --deep update). However, it would seem that implementing being able to exclude such a package would be non-trivial - considering dependency handling, it would seem to require two passes, which is perhaps the point to start using femerge.

eclean is yet another cleaning script for Gentoo. It is based on some ideas from the Cleaning out stale distfiles thread, that in fact also apply well to binary package cleaning, and thus can do both. Nothing really new inside in fact, i've just tried to give a clean and fast answer to this now classic problem. You can find it attached to bug #33877.

Miscellaneous portage scripts mixed in with other non-portage scripts I'll have to sort and describe in the list:

I downloaded the bumper script (named it bumper), placed it in /home/wrc, made it executable, then cd as root to /home/wrc, and tried these commands. What am I doing wrong- I must be missing something?

I have /usr/local/portage, OVERLAY in /etc/make.conf is uncommented, and I have gentoolkit.

mymachine wrc # bumper media-video/kplayer-0.4.0 0.5.1
bash: bumper: command not found

mymachine wrc # bumper media-video/kplayer-0.4.0 kplayer-0.5.1
bash: bumper: command not found

Thanks,
wrc1944

You must call commands not in a PATH directory with their pathname. For example, ./bumper. An alternative is to move it to /usr/local/bin
