Upgrading FreeBSD Packages

In my last post I discussed upgrading from FreeBSD 7.0 to 7.1. In this post I'll mention packages that needed to be updated.

In the last post I showed two installed packages using the native pkg_info command.

neely# pkg_info
cdrtools-2.01_6 CD/CD-R[W] and ISO-9660 image creation and extraction tools
dvd+rw-tools-7.0 DVD burning software

At this point I could have used pkg_delete to remove them, and added the newest packages via pkg_add. Because that is easy, I decided to show an alternative that might be better for systems with many packages.

I decided to use Portupgrade to update packages installed on the system. Portupgrade was not on the box so I added it via pkg_add. I used the -n switch to do a "dry run" to see what version would be added.

neely# pkg_add -vrn portupgrade

pkg_add: 1 package addition(s) failed

Notice pkg_add used ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-7.1-release/Latest as its installation location. I could have altered this behavior by setting an environment variable thus:

setenv PACKAGESITE ftp://ftp2.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-7-stable/Latest/

I didn't do that here, however, so I'm installing the version as released with 7.1.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fill ALT_PKGDEP section in pkgtools.conf file for portupgrade
be aware of alternative dependencies you use.
E.g.
ALT_PKGDEP = {
'www/apache13' => 'www/apache13-modssl',
'print/ghostscript-gnu' => 'print/ghostscript-gpl',
}

Note also, portupgrade knows nothing how to handle ports with different
suffixes (E.g. -nox11). So you should explicitly define variables
(E.g. WITHOUT_X11=yes) for the ports in /etc/make.conf or pkgtools.conf
(MAKE_ARGS section) files.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Great, now let's see what needs to be updated.

neely# pkg_version -v
cdrtools-2.01_6 ? orphaned: sysutils/cdrtools
db41-4.1.25_4 ? orphaned: databases/db41
dvd+rw-tools-7.0 ? orphaned: sysutils/dvd+rw-tools
portupgrade-2.4.6,2 ? orphaned: ports-mgmt/portupgrade
ruby-1.8.6.287,1 ? orphaned: lang/ruby18
ruby18-bdb-0.6.4 ? orphaned: databases/ruby-bdb

Ah, I don't have a ports tree on this system. Even though I'm not building anything using the ports tree (I'm installing packages), I still need a local copy of the ports tree to know what is current. I install it using Portsnap.

In the future to update I would change extract to update.

Now I can see what needs updating.

neely# pkg_version -v
cdrtools-2.01_6 < needs updating (port has 2.01_7)
db41-4.1.25_4 = up-to-date with port
dvd+rw-tools-7.0 < needs updating (port has 7.1)
portupgrade-2.4.6,2 = up-to-date with port
ruby-1.8.6.287,1 = up-to-date with port
ruby18-bdb-0.6.4 = up-to-date with port

I decided to run Portupgrade and tell it to only use packages (PP):

===========================================================================

Note: The location of the cdrtools `defaults' files has been set to

/usr/local/etc

This is the FreeBSD ports standard config file location, NOT the cdrtools
standard location, which is /etc/default.

The reason for this is that FreeBSD ports and packages should not use
configuration files outside of /usr/local.
