SYNOPSIS

pkg check [-Bdsr] [-nqvy] [-a-| -Cgix pattern]

pkg check [--{shlibs,dependencies,checksums,recompute}] [--{dry-run,quiet,verbose,yes}] [--all | --{case-sensitive,glob,case-insensitive,regex} pattern]

DESCRIPTION

pkg check -B or pkg check --shlibs regenerates the library dependency metadata for a package by extracting library requirement information from the binary ELF files in the package.

pkg check -d or pkg check --dependencies checks for and installs missing dependencies.

pkg check -r or pkg check --recompute recalculates and sets the checksums of installed packages. This command should only be used when the administrator has made modifications that invalidate a package checksum. Spontaneous checksum problems can indicate data or security problems.

pkg check -s or pkg check --checksums detects installed packages with invalid checksums. An invalid checksum can be caused by data corruption or tampering.

OPTIONS

These options are supported by pkg check:
-a -, --all Process all packages.
-C -, --case-sensitive
  Use case sensitive standard or regular expression -( -x ) matching with pattern.
-g -, --glob Treat pattern as a shell glob pattern.
-i -, --case-insensitive
  Use case insensitive standard or regular expression -( -x ) matching with pattern. This is the default unless CASE_SENSITIVE_MATCH has been set to true in pkg.conf.
-n -, --dry-run
  Only check for missing dependencies, do not install them.
-v -, --verbose
  Be verbose.
-q -, --quiet Suppress most output, except for error messages and data that the command explicitly requests. This is primarily intended for scripting use.
-x -, --regex Treat pattern as a regular expression, using the "modern" or "extended" syntax described in re_format(7).
-y -, --yes Assume "yes" when asked for confirmation before installing missing dependencies.

ENVIRONMENT

These environment variables affect the execution of pkg check. See pkg.conf(5) for additional information.
PKG_DBDIR
CASE_SENSITIVE_MATCH
 

FILES

See pkg.conf(5).

EXAMPLES

Regenerate the library dependency metadata of all installed packages from the library information in each package’s binary ELF files:
pkg check -Ba

Test for missing dependencies needed by nano, installing any that are missing:

pkg check -d nano

Test the checksums of all installed packages to make sure none are corrupted:

pkg check -sa
