pkgng – Package manager for FreeBSD >= 9.0¶
Manage binary packages for FreeBSD using ‘pkgng’ which is available in versions after 9.0.
When using pkgsite, be careful that already in cache packages won’t be downloaded again.
When used with a loop: each package will be processed individually, it is much more efficient to pass the list directly to the name option.
- name: Install package foo pkgng: name: foo state: present - name: Annotate package foo and bar pkgng: name: foo,bar annotation: '+test1=baz,-test2,:test3=foobar' - name: Remove packages foo and bar pkgng: name: foo,bar state: absent # "latest" support added in 2.7 - name: Upgrade package baz pkgng: name: baz state: latest
