Latest Release 3.0.0 on 07/20/2020
Portpeek is alive and well, but this page, not so much. I’ll detail out the optimization changes I did on this release in the near future.
For now, you can view the git log of the last 4 years of changes if you are interested here:
My plan is to update this more frequently as portpeek changes. At least more frequently than once ever 4 years or so.
Latest Release: 2.1.21 on 12/05/2016
Portpeek is still actively maintained and has been receiving features and bug fixes. Feel free to open bugs at http://bugs.gentoo.org if you encounter any issues at all.
For a summary of changes please go to:
Portpeek is a script for Gentoo users to use to determine if packages the user has in package.keyword or package.unmask have gone stable and can be removed. The script can also remove these unneeded packages automatically. There is an ebuild available from Gentoo’s portage system.
Latest Release: 1.8.0
Portpeek will now handle the tilde in the package.* files.
It will look for a package > the indicated package and remove
the line if a stabled version is detected. Please backup your files
before trying this feature
Portpeek now shows file information where line was found
Source Download Link (script and man page)
Fixed bug when determining if package is masked
Remove the use of deprecated portage python modules.
Packages without atoms (=<>) will not display as stable as this program is intended for managing version specific lines in package.mask and package.keywords
Fixed a bug where commented lines were removed when they matched a package being removed.
This version has the ability to turn off the color output.
