List all packages installedEdit

Method 1Edit

  • execute: equery list "*"
Example output
 * Searching for * ...
[IP-] [  ] app-accessibility/festival-2.1:0
[IP-] [  ] app-accessibility/speech-tools-2.1-r1:0
[IP-] [  ] app-admin/conky-1.8.1-r3:0
[IP-] [  ] app-admin/eselect-1.2.15:0
[IP-] [  ] app-admin/eselect-boost-0.3:0
[IP-] [  ] app-admin/eselect-cblas-0.1:0

Method 2Edit

If you do not have gentoolkit installed (that provides equery) and do not want to install it, you can just use the package "database" in /var/db/pkg:

  • cd /var/db/pkg/ && ls -d */*
Example output
..
x11-themes/tango-icon-theme-0.8.90/
x11-themes/tango-icon-theme-extras-0.1.0-r1/
x11-wm/openbox-3.5.0-r1/
x11-wm/twm-1.0.7/
xfce-base/exo-0.6.2/
xfce-base/garcon-0.1.9/
xfce-base/libxfce4ui-4.8.0/
..

to remove the ending slash for a more standard output try

  • cd /var/db/pkg/ && ls -d */*|sed 's/\/$//'


Or you can skip changing directorise entirely with

  • ls -d /var/db/pkg/*/*| cut -f5- -d/

Method 3Edit

Using list-gentoo-packages.sh script, displays installs packages and the USE flags

Example Output
...
