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
