Description Marius Mauch (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-12-27 08:15:17 UTC
Please don't recommend qpkg anymore, I *will* remove it in the next gentoolkit version (2.1 or 3.0), won't be tomorrow or next week but people really should stop using it.
Comment 1 Stefano Pacella (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-12-27 12:04:02 UTC
I put a patch in case qpkg is removed in gentoolkit.xml

Chapter removed. Thanks for the patch, fixed in CVS.

Reopening, the Gentoo Developer Handbook also contains some references to qpkg

hmm now that you have removed qpkg how can i list all the packages installed without their versions shown? 

i used qpkg -I -nc in my batchfiles and
now I dont know how to reliably replace it ?

please advise,

What about "equery list"? 

You can read equery man page or our doc about gentoolkit at

barthek, please, don't use for this type of questions. You can use forums or gentoo-user mailling list instead. Thanks.
