PKG-CHECK(8)            FreeBSD System Manager's Manual           PKG-CHECK(8)

NAME
     pkg check - sanity check installed packages

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
