lvu is part of the lunar source-based package management suite. It is a general purpose command-line tool for displaying package logs, version information, checking for installed packages, checksums, message digests, maintainer information, package URL information, displaying new packages, untracked files, sections, searching for files that are installed, finding when modules were created and packages in the soft- ware catalogue. It can even take and retrieve snapshots of currently installed packages for easy duplication.
displays installed modules that have no explicit dependencies on them orphans
displays installed modules that are missing required dependen- cies
display modules installed that are pam aware
changes current directory to the given module and execs a new shell
view the long package description
display the section a module belongs to
display the URL for the specified module
list all source files contained in a module
list all URLs for a module
display the email address of the person currently responsible for maintaining a specified module
display version of module in moonbase
show the compiler output generated when the module was built
display the modules that this module's ELF binary files actually links to
used to determine what files were installed by a module and where those files are located
display held modules
display exiled modules
display a list of modules which will be updated by a `lunar renew`
print CRC checksums for modules(s). If no module is given it defaults to all.
print module MD5 message digests (fingerprints). If no module is given it default to all
take a snapshot of all modules currently installed
restore the snapshot from a previous lvu export command (see the export option)
prints the entire moonbase
prints the entire moonbase in a nice html format
view summary log of previous lunar update
view the main lunar activity log
Searches modules long descriptions for phrase
displays modules that provide the given service port|acronym
print packages that are newer than a specified date. the date must be specified in the 'yyyymmdd' format, where y=year, m=month, and d=day
print packages that are older than a specified date. the date must be specified in the 'yyyymmdd' format, where y=year, m=month, and d=day
find out what module has <path>/file installed
view all installed packages and corresponding version numbers or check to see whether a particular package is installed and if it is installed display its version number
view a list of all sections in the software catalogue or display a list of packages from a specific section
display the size of a given module or all your installed modules in KB
start looking at what lin is compiling at the moment and outputs it. A module can be optionally specified.
displays the modules that explicitly or recursively depend on this module.
displays a tree of the module's dependencies.
displays a tree of the module's reverse dependencies.
Copy an existing module to zlocal so it can be edited. Turn on ZLOCAL_OVERRIDES to make sure your edited module gets used instead of the default module.
Discards your 'edit'ed zlocal module. Works the same as removing it.
Submit a module to the lunar module submission list/mail alias. Please only submit tested changes.
replace $MODULE_SCRIPT with any of the following DETAILS | CON- FIGURE | CONFLICTS | PRE_BUILD | BUILD | POST_BUILD | POST_INSTALL | POST_REMOVE to show module scripts for the module
