(Sorry for the inconvenience)

pc-metapkgmanager is the back-end command line utility used by the PC-BSD® installer, System Manager, Update Manager, and Warden® to manage meta-packages. Meta-packages are like system components, and include supported and unsupported desktops, development utilities, hardware drivers, and miscellaneous applications such as MythTV or XBMC.

Beginning with version 9.1, PC-BSD® uses metapkgsets to determine which system components are available and which applications are installed with each system component. Currently, two metapkgsets are available: pcbsd which defines the available desktop components, and warden which defines the components available when creating a jail with Warden® or installing a PC-BSD® server. You can view the contents of these metapkgsets on trac[1].

The pc-metapkgmanager command can be used at the command line to install or delete meta-packages, update to the latest package set, or to change the default metapkgset. If you type the command without any options, it will display its usage:

pc-metapkgmanager
usage: pc-metapkgmanager [options]
Options:
 add pkg1,pkg2 <loc>	 -- Add the specified list of meta-packages 
                           <loc> should be a FTP / HTTP url where pkg_add 
                           can fetch packages, or an absolute path to 
                           location of pkg files on disk.
 checkup		 -- Check for updates to pkgs
 del pkg1,pkg2	  	 -- Delete the specified list of meta-packages
 list     	         -- List the available meta-packages
 status <pkg>    	 -- List the status of the specified meta-packages
 update pkg,pkg2 <loc>  -- Update system packages. Can use 'all' or <pkg,pkg2>.
                           <loc> should be a FTP / HTTP url where pkg_add 
                           can fetch packages, or an absolute path to 
                           location of pkg files on disk.
 --pkgset <pkgset>	 -- Change default pkgset we are using
 --chroot <dir>	 -- Operate on the directory specified using chroot

To determine which meta-packages are available:

To permanently change the default metapkgset between pcbsd and warden, modify the PCBSD_METAPKGSET variable in /usr/local/etc/pcbsd.conf.

To determine if a meta-package is installed, specify its "Meta Package" name as shown in the output of the 'pc-metapkgmanager list command. For example, to see if the Awesome desktop is installed:

pc-metapkgmanager status Awesome
The meta-pkg Awesome is not installed

To install the meta-package, specify the meta-package name. The following example installs the Awesome meta-package. Only the superuser can install meta-packages. If you do not specify the URL, the default mirror will be used. If you receive an error, you can change the default mirror in Control Panel ➜ System Manager ➜ Mirrors.

pc-metapkgmanager add Awesome 
Pending Meta-Package changes: 1
Installing Meta-Package: Awesome
Pending package changes: 1
Installing package: awesome-3.4.11_1
The meta-pkg Awesome is installed
Finished Meta-Package: Awesome
Meta-Package changes finished!

To delete an installed meta-package, specify its name. Only the superuser can uninstall meta-packages.

pc-metapkgmanager del Awesome
Pending Meta-Package changes: 1
Removing Meta-Package: Awesome
Pending package changes: 1
Removing: awesome-3.4.11_1
The meta-pkg Awesome is not installed
Pruning unused packages... This may take a while...
Meta-Package changes finished!

pc-metapkgmanager can also be used to upgrade the packages that came with the operating system. When you run the pc-metapkgmanager list | more command, the "base-system" meta-package lists these packages. To determine if any are out-of-date:

pc-metapkgmanager status base-system
??The meta-pkg base-system is partially installed??

??To update the out-of-date base packages, run the following command as the superuser:??

pc-metapkgmanager update base-system ftp://mirrors.isc.org/pub/pcbsd/9-STABLE-20120605/amd64/netinstall/metapackages/pcbsd/All/   URL WILL CHANGE FOR RELEASE

pc-metapkgmanager records any error messages to /tmp/.pc-metamanager.log. This log file automatically rotates whenever it reaches 5MB in size.
