Updated April 21, 2003

pfilter is a script that uses dialog (emerge dialog) to allow you to deselect some of the packages portage wants to emerge when you do something like an "emerge -up world". This is very useful if you have a full world-file you don't want to edit and use "emerge -u world" to keep your system up to date, but don't want to emerge all the things portage suggests at once. femerge is simple wrapper for emerge that will take the same options as emerge (but may die horribly if you try to use things like -C or -f yet) and lets you filter down the suggested packages repeatedly until you're happy and then emerge it.

The scripts are below - put the code in /usr/local/bin/pfilter and /usr/local/bin/femerge respectively, make them executable, and emerge dialog if you haven't got it installed.

To use pfilter by itself, do something like:
Code:
# emerge -up world | pfilter

This will let you filter the packages suggested by emerge -up world and print these to the standard output. To emerge these right away, do:
Code:
# emerge -up world | pfilter | xargs emerge -u


To make this process a little easier, and to allow you to filter the packages again and again until you're happy with what portage will install, run femerge:
Code:
# femerge -u world


femerge should honour options like --deep, --emptytree, --fetchonly, --nodeps, --noreplace, --oneshot, --resume, --update, --upgradeonly and the binary package-related options, but many of these have not been extensively tested yet (I don't feel like making this box a guinnea pig in a place where I only have a 64k ISDN connection! :?). It should work, as options are just passed through to emerge, but please be careful!
Update:femerge now passes options it doesn't recognise through to regular old emerge and exits.


Changelog:
2003-04-06: Fixed silly bug in femerge that was causing the final emerge step to break.
2003-04-06 (a little later): Fixed bug in pfilter that caused it to crash if there were no inputs (i.e. emerge -up XZY had nothing to update). Made femerge a little more aware of command line options.
2003-04-07: Decided to do it properly - the code has now been cleaned up and modularised significantly, femerge should now deal properly with --fetchonly/-f, and also handles compound options like "-uf". Also, it's possible to use another emerge wrapper (e.g. semerge) if it complies sufficiently with emerge's options by changing the variable $emerge_cmd at the top of the femerge script.
2003-04-07 (a little later): pfilter now remembers which version of a package is being emerged specifically (i.e. if you're trying to emerge a package that is not the latest non-masked one). Made femerge output prettier using the functions in /sbin/functions.sh.
2003-04-08: femerge now falls back on emerge for options it doesn't understand, meaning you can use it as a full wrapper for emerge. femerge will no longer add dependencies to the worldfile - only packages specified on the original command line, presuming they are not filtered out and --oneshot is not specified.
2003-04-23 Added -d option to pfilter that will deselect (rather than select) all packages by default. Pass -d to femerge for the same effect.


I'd be very grateful if people could test this more - it seems to work for me, and as long as you're not entirely wreckless, it should be pretty difficult to do any unintended damage with it. :-)

3 things:

1. Awsome idea, just what I was looking for.

2. You need to have dialog installed to use pfilter.

3. I get this when trying to emerge after filtering:
Code:
Press (e) to emerge, (f) to filter again (a) to abort: e
Emerging...
Calculating dependencies
 
emerge: there are no masked or unmasked ebuilds to satisfy "sys-libs/zlib
sys-apps/findutils
sys-apps/modutils
sys-apps/file
app-editors/nano
dev-libs/libxml2
x11-misc/xscreensaver
sys-apps/diffutils
net-p2p/dctc
net-p2p/dc-gui
sys-devel/bin86
sys-apps/net-tools
sys-apps/gzip
dev-lang/tk
sys-apps/psmisc
sys-apps/debianutils
net-misc/dhcpcd
sys-apps/hdparm
sys-apps/pam-login
sys-apps/devfsd
sys-apps/less".


Something specific to my setup maybe?

Hmm... that's a bit odd... I should've made it clear that this is in need of lots more testing - please help! :-).

Can you tell me what command you ran? Did you do
Code:
# femerge -u world
and then filtered out some packages? If this is the case, can you try this:
Code:
#emerge -up world | pfilter
, filter the same packages and then post the output of pfilter? This should basically be the list of packages that femerge is trying to emerge (femerge just passes that list straight to emerge after you press "e").

(A few minutes later:) Hmm... I'm getting it too now and I think I know what the problem is (apart from inadequate testing), so give me a few minutes and I'll see if I can't fix it - I'm gonna edit the original post to make it less confusing - stay tuned.

Lastly - if anyone can come up with a clever way of getting the colour back in emerge's output when it's run within femerge and still be able to pipe it to pfilter, that would be nice - I tried for a while and then gave up. :-)

Er.... that works just fine here - are you sure you have the latest versions? pfilter should (only) print that message if you supplied any command line arguments to it (seeing as it takes no command line arguments).

Also, try to use femerge (it's nicer to use anyway) - run:

Code:
simposon root # femerge -u world


And see if that works.

A simple copy and paste of pfilter or femerge don't work for me too, but the solution is more than simple ;-)

Just replace '\ ' by '\'.

Yes, it's the stupid 'space' after the backslash, which the browser creates.

And big thanks to optilude for this famous tools.

Hmm... that's strange. What browser were you using? I had trouble copying scripts with konqueror, and had to resort to phoenix before.

Glad you like them! Check out ebb/bemerge as well, in another post in this forum. :-)

Most the time I use opera 6.06 (within Windows XP)
there this frailure occur.

Sometimes I use Mozilla 1.3
there this frailure not occur.

Other browser I don't know.

Works great for me... I hated everytime I did emerge sync that it would want to downgrade packages after I emerge -uD world... I had to go into the package.mask and set xfree-r2 etc. commented out... now I just do fmerge :)

Hehe...

Glad you like it! I've been working on some bash functions to find out whether one package is a dependency on another (mostly done)... I'm gonna build this into pfilter/femerge so that it can show which packages you specified originally on the command line or in your worldfile, and which ones are dependencies, but it'll have to wait till I get some spare time again (assignment time at uni again.... :-() Stay tuned.

Absolute magic!

This is JUST the tool I was looking for - I was having problems with manually masking packages and then dependencies failing etc. when trying to do an emerge --deep -u world.

Works great on my machine! Thanks so much!

EDIT: I spoke too soon. It doesnt work. It still downgrades packages when I run pfilter. When I run femerge, and then go and filter packages again, the dependencies are exactly the same as they were for the previous run through which means taht when doing the actual emerge, it still downgrades a heap of my packages. It is a nice tool and a nice idea, and unless you can tell me how to make it work properly then I'll still be doing things manually.

Er... can you tell me what you're trying to do? It should work like this: You run "femerge -U world" - the -U means it won't downgrade anything (same as --upgradeonly). pfilter will then come up with a bunch of packages - deselect any packages you want - however, if libXYZ is a dependency of ABC, and you deselect libXYZ but not ABC, then of course libXYZ will still be installed - anything else would be a terrible bug!

You should realise - pfilter works a little like this:

* Get a list of packages from emerge <options> -p <something>
* Allow you deselect any or all of those packages
* Print out the packges you ended up selecting (including all dependencies that you haven't deselected)

femerge lets you run this process repeatedly until you're happy with the result, and runs emerge with those packages at the end. It also makes sure your worldfile won't get mangled with dependencies, and lets you pass specific options, such as -U to emerge.

Does that help?

Martin

yes, it does help thankyou. i didnt realise that there was a -U option (ie. upgrade only) and i was doing complicated masking etc. of packages for my upgrading world. now that i know that, i'll try using femerge again. thanks

But there is no --usepkg suport. I means that you can not see whether a package wil be installed form source or binary. How can add this feature? Thanks in advance.

Hmmm.... I never use --usepkg, so I haven't tested it with that, I'll look into it.

If you look at the init function of femerge, it *should* work. femerge has a variable $final_emerge_options which holds a string of command line options that are passed to emerge on the final "real" emerge only - --usepkg should be included here!

Can you tell me what happens when you try to do

$femerge --usepkg <other options> <packages>

swimmer pointed this out to me and from what I have read, this is exactly what I have been looking for... but, when I do:

Code:
femerge --upgradeonly world


I get the following...
Code:

 * Calculating dependencies...
 * Cancelled.


If I remove the --upgradeonly option, it works great.

Any suggestions?

Hmm.... it works fine here. I'd suggest getting a fresh copy of the script from above. Make sure your browser doesn't mess it up (phoenix/mozilla firebird generally work well for me, but I had problems in konqueror before). Also, try to run 'emerge --pretend --upgradeonly world' and see what it says (this is basically what femerge runs internally). If there are any errors there, try to fix them before trying again. Please let me know if you're still having trouble!
