Package Utilities Suite

Package Utilities Suite

The pkgutils suite contains tools to assist in configuring, installing, managing, and upgrading an installation. The following utilities are provided and documented in the links on the right under the "Package Utilities Suite Table of Contents" heading:
pkg-inst Installs and upgrades packages available in a local or remote repository. pkg-inst is the preferred method of installing packages, regardless of the package management system being used.
pkg-rm Removes packages installed with the pkg-inst tool, regardless of the package management system being used.
pkg-info List installed packages, packages from a repository, package information, and what packages have common links associated with them.
pkg-config Install and remove links to common bin, info, and man directories after installation of a package. Similar to the HP-UX "swconfig" command.
chk-pkg-updates Check for new releases relative to what is installed.
