Hi,

have you ever heared about www.portagefilelist.de ? As I never have heared of this service before, I thought I let you know too...

Portage File List collects which files are installed by which ebuild on users machines. It shares this data publicly for searching/browsing.
It allows user to search for files that are not installed on their system and figure out which ebuild they need to install in order to obtain it.

AFAIK equery b <filename> does the same. equery belongs to the app-portage/gentoolkit package.

Code:

# equery --help
Gentoo package query tool
Usage: equery [global-options] module-name [module-options]

global options
 -h, --help              display this help message
 -q, --quiet             minimal output
 -C, --no-color          turn off colors
 -N, --no-pipe           turn off pipe detection
 -V, --version           display version info

modules (short name)
 (b)elongs               list what package FILES belong to

......

# equery b /usr/bin/equery
 * Searching for /usr/bin/equery ...
app-portage/gentoolkit-0.3.0_rc11-r3 (/usr/bin/equery)
