用户指南 - 6. 在命令行使用 Fink 工具

6.1 使用 Fink 工具

fink 工具使用几个后缀命令来处理源程序发行包。其中的一些需要至少有一个软件包名称,但同时可以处理多个软件包。你可以简单地应用软件包的名称(例如, gimp),或包括版本号的全名(例如 gimp-1.2.1) 或包含版本号和修订版号的名称 (例如 gimp-1.2.1-3)。在没有指明版本的情况下,Fink 会自动选择最新的版本。其它还具有不同的选项。

下面是 fink 工具的命令清单:

6.2 Global options

There are some options, which apply to all fink commands. If you type fink --help you get the list of options:

(as of fink-0.26.0)

-h, --help - displays help text.

-q, --quiet - causes fink to be less verbose, opposite of --verbose. Overrides the Verbose flag in fink.conf.

-V, --version - display version information.

-v, --verbose - causes fink to be more verbose, opposite of --quiet. Overrides the Verbose field in fink.conf.

-y, --yes - assume default answer for all interactive questions.

-K, --keep-root-dir - Causes fink not to delete the root-[name]-[version]-[revision] directory in the Buildpath after building a package. Corresponds to the KeepRootDir field in fink.conf.

-k, --keep-build-dir - Causes fink not to delete the [name]-[version]-[revision] directory in the Buildpath after building a package. Corresponds to the KeepBuildDir field in fink.conf.

-b, --use-binary-dist - download pre-compiled packages from the binary distribution if available (e.g. to reduce compile time or disk usage). Note that this mode instructs fink to download the version it wants if that version is available for download; it does not cause fink to choose a version based on its binary availability. Corresponds to the UseBinaryDist flag in fink.conf.

--no-use-binary-dist - Don't use pre-compiled binary packages from the binary distribution, opposite of the --use-binary-dist flag. This is the default unless overridden by setting UseBinaryDist: true in the fink.conf configuration file.

--build-as-nobody - Drop to a non-root user when performing the unpack, patch, compile, and install phases. Note that packages built with this option may be non-functional. You should use this mode for package development and debugging only.

-m, --maintainer - (fink-0.25 and later) Perform actions useful to package maintainers: run validation on the .info file before building and on the .deb after building a package; turn certain build-time warnings into fatal errors; (fink-0.26 and later) run the test suites as specified in the field. This sets --tests and --validate to on.

--tests[=on|off|warn] - (fink-0.26.0 and later) Causes InfoTest fields to be activated and test suites specified via TestScript to be executed (see the Fink Packaging Manual). If no argument is given to this option or if the argument is on then failures in test suites will be considered fatal errors during builds. If the argument is warn then failures will be treated as warnings.

--validate[=on|off|warn] - Causes packages to be validated during a build. If no argument is given to this option or if the argument is on then validation failures will be considered fatal errors during builds. If the argument is warn then failures will be treated as warnings.

-l, --log-output - Save a copy of the terminal output during each package building process. By default, the file is stored in /tmp/fink-build-log_[name]-[version]-[revision]_[date]-[time] but one can use the --logfile flag to specify an alternate filename.

--no-log-output - Don't save a copy of the output during package-building, opposite of the --log-output flag. This is the default.

--logfile=filename - Save package build logs to the file filename instead of the default file (see the --log-output flag, which is implicitly set by the --logfile flag). You can use percent-expansion codes to include specific package information automatically. A complete list of percent-expanions is available in the Fink Packaging Manual; some common percent-expansions are:

-t, --trees=expr - Consider only packages in trees matching expr. The format of expr is a comma-delimited list of tree specifica- tions. Trees listed in fink.conf are compared against expr. Only those which match at least one tree specification are considered by fink, in the order of the first specifications which they match. If no --trees option is used, all trees listed in fink.conf are included in order. A tree specification may contain a slash (/) character, in which case it requires an exact match with a tree. Otherwise, it matches against the first path-element of a tree. For example, --trees=unstable/main would match only the unstable/main tree, while --trees=unstable would match both unstable/main and unstable/crypto. There exist magic tree specifications which can be included in expr:

Exclusion of (or failure to include) these magic trees is currently only supported for operations which do not install or remove packages.

-T, --exclude-trees=expr Consider only packages in trees not matching expr. The syntax of expr is the same as for --trees, including the magic tree specifications. However, matching trees are here excluded rather than included. Note that trees matching both --trees and --exclude-trees are excluded.

Examples of --trees and --exclude-trees:

Most of these options are self-explanatory (see here for the definition of Buildpath). They can also be set in the Fink configuration file (fink.conf) if you want to set them permanently and not just for that invocation of fink.

6.3 install

install 命令用于安装软件包。它下载,配置,构建和安装你指名的软件包。它还会自动安装需要的依赖关系,但在此之前会要求你确认。例如:

fink install nedit

Reading package info...
Information about 131 packages read.
The following additional package will be installed:
Do you want to continue? [Y/n]

Use of the --use-binary-dist option with fink install can speed the build process for complicated packages by quite a lot.

install 命令的别名包括: update, enable, activate, use (这些别名多数是因为历史原因形成的)。

6.4 remove

The remove command removes packages from the system by calling 'dpkg --remove'. The current default implementation has a flaw: it doesn't check dependencies itself but rather completely leaves that to the dpkg tool (usually this poses no problem, though).

The remove command only removes the actual package files, (excluding configuration files), but leaves the .deb compressed package file intact. This means that you can re-install the package later without going through the compile process again. If you need the disk space, you can remove the .deb from the /sw/fink/dists tree.

These flags can be used with the fink remove command

-h,--help             - Show the options which are available.
-r,--recursive        - Also remove packages that depend on the package(s) to
                        be removed (i.e. overcome the above-mentioned flaw).

Aliases: disable, deactivate, unuse, delete.

6.5 purge

The purge command purges packages from the system. This is the same as the remove command except that it removes configuration files as well.

This command takes the:



6.6 update-all


fink update-all

--use-binary-dist is also useful with this command.

6.7 list

这个命令产生一个可用的软件包,它的安装情况,最新版本和简单的描述。 如果你不使用其它参数的话,它会列出所有可用软件包。 你可以附上一个名称或 shell 模式,fink 会列出所有匹配的软件包。


 i   已安装最新版本
(i)  已安装,但不是最新版本
 p   a virtual package provided by a package that is installed

The version column always lists the latest (highest) version known for the package, regardless of what version (if any) you have installed. To see all versions of a package available on your sys- tem, use the dumpinfo command.

fink list 命令可以使用下面这些标志:

-s expr,--section=expr
-m expr,--maintainer=expr
          Show only packages with the maintainer  matching the
          regular expression expr.
-r expr,--tree=expr
          Show only packages in the trees matching the regular
          expression expr.
	  设定你希望输出格式化为的宽度。xyz 可以为一个数字或者 auto。
	  auto 会根据终端的宽度来设置输出宽度。
	  默认值是 auto。


fink list                 - 列出所有的软件包
fink list bash            - 检查 bash 是否可用,以及它的版本
fink list --outdated      - 列出过期的软件包
fink list --section=kde   - 列出属于 kde 部分的软件包
fink list "gnome*"        - 列出所有以 'gnome' 开头的软件包

在最后一个例子中,引号是必须的。因为这样才可以避免 shell 自己来匹配这个模式。

6.8 apropos

这个命令的作用几乎和 fink list 一样。最主要区别是 fink apropos 还会搜索软件包描述来寻找软件包。第二个区别是必需提供一个搜索字符串,而不是可选的。

fink apropos irc          - 寻找在名称或描述中包含 'irc' 的软件包
fink apropos -s=kde irc   - 同上,但只在 kde 部分寻找

6.9 describe

你在这个命令中给出软件包的名称,命令会输出它的描述。 注意,目前只有一小部分软件包有描述信息。

别名: desc, description, info

6.10 plugins

List the (optional) plugins available to the fink program. Currently lists the notification mechanisms and the source-tarball checksum algorithms.

6.11 fetch


The following flags can be used with the fetch command:

-h,--help		Show the options which are available.
-i,--ignore-restrictive	Do not fetch packages that are "License: Restrictive".
                      	Useful for mirrors, because some restrictive packages
                      	do not allow source mirroring.
-d,--dry-run		Just display information about the file(s) that would
			be downloaded for the package(s) to be fetched; do not
			actually download anything.
-r,--recursive		Also fetch packages that are dependencies of the
			package(s) to be fetched.

6.12 fetch-all

下载 所有 软件包源程序文件。和 fetch 一样,它会下载即使已经下载过的压缩档。

These flags can be used with the fink fetch-all command:


6.13 fetch-missing

下载 所有 缺失的软件包源程序文件。这个命令只下载系统中没有的文件。

These flags can be used with the fink fetch-missing command:


6.14 build

构建一个软件包,并不安装它。通常,缺少的源压缩档会自动被下载。这个命令的结果是产生一个可用于安装的 .deb 软件包文件,以后你可以使用 install 命令迅速地安装它。如果 .deb 文件已经存在,这个命令会什么都不干。注意,依赖关系会被安装,而不仅仅是构建。

6.15 rebuild

构建一个软件包(和 build 命令类似),但忽略和覆盖现存的 .deb 文件。如果这个软件包已经安装,新创建的 .deb 文件也会通过 dpkg 安装到系统。对软件包开发过程很有用。

The --use-binary-dist option is applicable here.

6.16 reinstall

和 install 相同,但会使用 dpkg 安装,即使它已经被安装。你可以用这个命令安装被意外删除的软件包文件或者改变了设置文件以后希望恢复回默认的设置。

6.17 configure

重新运行 fink 的配置过程。 你可以改变镜像站点和代理服务器设置等。

New in fink-0.26.0: This command will also let you turn on the unstable trees if desired.

6.18 selfupdate

这个命令会自动更新到一个新的 Fink 版本。它检查 Fink 网站确定是否有新的版本。然后下载软件包描述并升级核心软件包,包括 fink 本身。这个命令可以升级标准的发布版本,但也可以设置你的 /sw/fink/dists 目录树来使用直接 CVS 或 rsync 进行升级, if you select one of those options the first time this command is run。这意味着你可以访问所有软件包的最新修订版。

If the --use-binary-dist option is enabled, the list of available packages in the binary distribution is also updated.

6.19 selfupdate-rsync

Use this command to make fink selfupdate use rsync to update its package list.

This is the recommended way to update Fink when building from source.

Note: rsync updates only update the active trees (e.g. if unstable isn't turned on in fink.conf the list of unstable packages won't be updated.

6.20 selfupdate-cvs

Use this command to make fink selfupdate use CVS access to update its package list.

CVS updating is deprecated, except for developers and those people who are behind firewalls that disallow rsync.

6.21 index

重建软件包缓存。通常你不应该手工运行这个命令,因为 fink 应该能够自动检测到什么时候需要更新。

6.22 validate

这个命令会对 .info.deb 文件进行一些检查。软件包维护人员在提交他们负责的软件包之前,应该运行这个命令来对它的描述和相应的构建好的软件包进行检查。

The following optional options may be used:

-h,--help            - Show the options which are available.
-p,--prefix          - Simulate an alternate Fink basepath prefix (%p) within
                      the files being validated.
--pedantic, --no-pedantic
                     - Control the display of nitpicky formatting warnings.
                      --pedantic is the default.

别名: check

6.23 scanpackages

Updates the apt-get database of debs; defaults to updating all of the trees, but may be restricted to a set of one or more trees given as arguments.

6.24 cleanup

Removes obsolete and temporary files. This can reclaim large amounts of disk space. One or more modes may be specified:

--debs               - Delete .deb files (compiled binary package archives)
                       corresponding to versions of packages that are neither
                       described by a package description (.info) file in the
                       currently-active trees nor presently installed.
--sources,--srcs     - Delete sources (tarballs, etc.) that are not used by
                       any package description (.info) file in the currently-
                       active trees.
--buildlocks, --bl   - Delete stale buildlock packages.
--dpkg-status        - Remove entries for packages that are not installed from
                       the dpkg "status" database.
--obsolete-packages  - Attempt to uninstall all installed packges that are
                       obsolete. (new in fink-0.26.0)
--all                - All of the above modes. (new in fink-0.26.0)

If no mode is specified, --debs --sources is the default action.

In addition, the following options may be used:

-k,--keep-src        - Move old source files to /sw/src/old/ instead of deleting them.
-d,--dry-run         - Print the names of the files that would be deleted, but
                       do not actually delete them.
-h,--help            - Show the modes and options which are available.

6.25 dumpinfo

Only available in fink newer than version 0.21.0

显示 fink 如何解析软件包的 .info 文件的各个部分。各个字段和百分号展开会按照下面选项的设置来显示:

-h, --help           - 显示可用的选项。
-a, --all            - 显示软件包描述文件的全部字段。
                       这时没有指定 --field 或 --percent 标志时的默认方式。
-f 字段名,            - 按列出的顺序显示给定的字段名
-p 关键字,            - 按列出顺序显示指定的关键字的百分号扩展

6.26 show-deps

Only available in fink-0.23-6 and later.

Displays a human-readable list of the compile-time (build) and run- time (installation) dependencies of the listed package(s).
