*UPDATE*
For everyone who likes this script, there is now an updated version of `esync` in the esearch package. All you have to do is
Code:
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS=~arch emerge esearch


You need a version >=esearch-0.5.3 From now on you can run
Code:
esync
. You don't have to create an extra directory etc., output of `emerge sync` will be logged to /var/log/emerge-sync.log.

Thanks to everyone who helped me to improve this script.

Description:
Ever wanted to know what is being updated during an emerge sync?
Here's a little script to show new packages and updates on existing packages.

Steps to install and use esync:

  1. You need esearch to run this script, so emerge it:
    Code:
    emerge esearch

  2. Create the esearch-index:
    Code:
    su
    eupdatedb

  3. Create a new folder somewhere (e.g. esync). esync will store a sync.log in it, so you may view the original output from 'emerge sync':
    Code:
    mkdir esync
    cd esync

  4. Download the current version of esync and make it executable:
    Code:
    wget http://david-peter.de/esync/esync
    chmod +x esync

  5. You're done. Just login as root and call esync:
    Code:
    su
    ./esync



How it works
First esync imports the old portage tree (esearch-index), then it executes 'emerge sync' (it stores the output in sync.log). Now it calls eupdatedb to regenerate the esearch-index and imports the new portage tree.
Now it loops through the new tree and compares it with the old one.

Result
For example, my ouput from today's esync is:
Code:
root (~) # esync
 * Getting old portage tree
 * Doing 'emerge sync' now
 * Doing 'eupdatedb' now

 * indexing: 0 ebuilds to go
 * esearch-index generated in 1 minutes and 7 seconds
 * indexed 5515 ebuilds
 * size of esearch-index: 843 kB

 * Getting new portage tree

Just my 2 cents:
An option like
Quote:
esync --logfile /path/to/logfile.log
would be useful.

Will it still work if I can only do a emerge-webrsync from my workstation ?

[edit] sounds like something I could use at home as well. Can I have it regularly run ? How would I insert something like this in vcron ? what about having it email the results to me daily ? is this too much that I am asking or is this all very easy ... ?

I'll possibly add this in an upcoming version

@El_Presidente_Pufferfish:
Code:
esync > logfile
will only put the output of esync into logfile, but I think Master_Of_Disaster want's to put the output of 'emerge sync' into that logfile

It will (I hope so, at least)

Of course you can. Just put a symlink to /path/to/esync into your cron.daily-folder?!

Should be no problem to write a small script...

I got the following error when I tried to run it from cron (this was the second time I run the script, first time it went okay):

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/drstrange/bin/esync", line 21, in ?
tree_old = gettree("old")
File "/drstrange/bin/esync", line 15, in gettree
from oldtree import db
ImportError: No module named oldtree

What's going wrong?

Hi,

The script nees write-access to the folder it is stored in. That's why I proposed to create an extra folder (It creates and deletes two symlinks during execution). I'm sure it will work, if you do the following with a small script (that you can run with your cronjob):
Code:

cd /path/to/esync-folder
./esync


I will try to do this on a better way in the next version

real nice script, but i had a tiny problem with "head" not liking "-1" and wanted to use "-n1" instead.
you have 2 options to fix it (for the rest of us using ~x86) :
1. add export _POSIX2_VERSION=199209 somewhere in the script (too much trouble, really..)
2. replace
Code:
    if pkg not in old_keys:
        os.system("esearch -c ^" + pkg.split("/")[1] + "$ | head -1")
    elif old[pkg] != new[pkg]:
        os.system("esearch -c ^" + pkg.split("/")[1] + "$ | head -1")

with
Code:
    if pkg not in old_keys:
        os.system("esearch -c ^" + pkg.split("/")[1] + "$ | head -n1")
    elif old[pkg] != new[pkg]:
        os.system("esearch -c ^" + pkg.split("/")[1] + "$ | head -n1")

here's the fully updated version, i made the error output of emerge sync to be saved to the log.
Code:
#!/usr/bin/env python2.2

import os
import sys
import portage
from output import red, green, bold

def emsg(msg):
    print green(" *"), msg

def gettree(tree):
    emsg("Getting " + tree + " portage tree")
    os.symlink("/var/cache/edb/esearchdb.pyc", tree + "tree.pyc")
    if tree == "old":
        from oldtree import db
    else:
        from newtree import db
    os.unlink(tree + "tree.pyc")
    return db

tree_old = gettree("old")

emsg("Doing 'emerge sync' now")

if os.system("emerge sync > sync.log 2>&1") != 0:
    print red(" * Error:"), "emerge sync failed"
    print ""
    sys.exit(1)

print ""
print ""
emsg("Doing 'eupdatedb' now")
print ""
os.system("eupdatedb")
print ""

tree_new = gettree("new")

emsg("Preparing databases")
new = {}
for pkg in tree_new:
    new[pkg[1]] = pkg[3]

old = {}
for pkg in tree_old:
    old[pkg[1]] = pkg[3]

emsg("Searching for changes")
old_keys = old.keys()
for (pkg, version) in new.items():
    if pkg not in old_keys:
        os.system("esearch -c ^" + pkg.split("/")[1] + "$ | head -n1")
    elif old[pkg] != new[pkg]:
        os.system("esearch -c ^" + pkg.split("/")[1] + "$ | head -n1")

peace

Here is another script to do almost the same thing:
- emerge sync
- mail the files that need to be updated
- show differences between last run

Code:

#!/bin/bash

EMAIL="admin@yourdomain.com"

DIR="/var/cache/gentoo-updates"
VERSION="5"

if [ ! -d ${DIR} ]
then
    mkdir ${DIR}
fi

if [ -f ${DIR}/updates.new ]
then
    mv ${DIR}/updates.new ${DIR}/updates.old
else
    touch ${DIR}/updates.old
fi

emerge sync > ${DIR}/rsync.log
emerge -Up world | grep ebuild | sort >& ${DIR}/updates.new
diff -u0 ${DIR}/updates.old ${DIR}/updates.new | grep ebuild > ${DIR}/updates.diff


#
# creating mail
#
echo "Packages that need to be updaded:" > ${DIR}/updates.mail
cat ${DIR}/updates.new >> ${DIR}/updates.mail
echo >>  ${DIR}/updates.mail
echo "Differences between last run:" >> ${DIR}/updates.mail
cat ${DIR}/updates.diff >> ${DIR}/updates.mail
echo >> ${DIR}/updates.mail
echo "--" >> ${DIR}/updates.mail
echo $0 version ${VERSION} >> ${DIR}/updates.mail

if [ -s ${DIR}/updates.new ] && [ -s ${DIR}/updates.diff ]
then
#    NB_UPDATES=`wc -l ${DIR}/updates.new | cut -f 1 -d " "`
    mail -s "Gentoo Updates At `hostname`" ${EMAIL} < ${DIR}/updates.mail
fi


example of the output:
Code:

Subject: Gentoo Updates At me-srv01
Content-Type:
X-UID: 104


Packages that need to be updaded:
[ebuild     U ] sys-apps/findutils-4.1.7-r5 [4.1.7-r4]
[ebuild     U ] sys-devel/binutils-2.14.90.0.6-r6 [2.14.90.0.6-r2]
[ebuild     U ] sys-libs/zlib-1.1.4-r2 [1.1.4-r1]

Differences between last run:
+[ebuild     U ] sys-libs/zlib-1.1.4-r2 [1.1.4-r1]

--
/etc/cron.daily/gentoo-updates.cron version 5


you can save the script in a file "gentoo-updates"
make it executable "chmod +x"
and put it in your /etc/cron.daily or /etc/cron.weekly

Hi,
Sorry, but I didn't see your answer because I did not recieve any email about it... strange.

Not even any error-messages?

Which version of esearch are you using? I have 0.5.1 and it works perfectly for me. In fact it should work with any version of esearch

Hey. Excellent idea and great script. Just one thought that occured to me when using it. When I ran it for the first time it froze on emerge sync and because it should no output I couldn't tell whether there had been a timeout or whether it was doing its job. The same goes for eupdatedb. Some indication of progress is reassuring to indicate that progress is ongoing. You could allow syncing and eupdatedb to produce their normal output on screen if you like and then esync can append its output later. Just a thought.

Hi,

esync writes it's output into the logfile sync.log. If you want to see the output you could change the script to not pipe the output to this file. The complete ouput of eupdatedb should be shown...?!

very nice script, just a minor cosmetical problem:
im using esync via a shell script:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
cd ~root/esync && ./esync > esynclog
less esynclog


esynclog:
Quote:
* indexing: 0 ebuilds to go
* esearch-index generated in 2 minute(s) and 2 second(s)
* indexed 6091 ebuilds
* size of esearch-index: 893 kB
[ N] hardened-gcc (2.4.5): This package provides transparent PaX/etdyn ASLR and
propolice/SSP in the gcc specs file.

[..]

[ N] sip (3.8): SIP is a tool for generating bindings for C++ classes so that t
hey can be used by Python.
* Getting old portage tree
* Doing 'emerge sync' now


* Doing 'eupdatedb' now


* Getting new portage tree
* Preparing databases
* Searching for changes

seems the text got mixed up somehow.

Very nice script!

What about bringing in the official portage tree?

Hi,
esync doesn't work in my box:
Code:
esync # ./esync
 * Getting old portage tree
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./esync", line 21, in ?
    tree_old = gettree("old")
  File "./esync", line 13, in gettree
    os.symlink("/var/cache/edb/esearchdb.pyc", tree + "tree.pyc")
OSError: [Errno 17] File exists


If i remove oldtree.pyc:
Code:

[root@Gentoo] -14:04- esync # ./esync
 * Getting old portage tree
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./esync", line 21, in ?
    tree_old = gettree("old")
  File "./esync", line 15, in gettree
    from oldtree import db
ImportError: Bad magic number in ./oldtree.pyc


Is it possible that it's related with the new version of python? I have:
Code:


esync # emerge -pv python wxPython

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild   R   ] dev-lang/python-2.3.2-r2  +ncurses +gdbm -ssl +readline +tcltk +berkdb -bootstrap +ipv6 -build -ucs2
[ebuild   R   ] dev-python/wxPython-2.4.2.4  +opengl +tiff +jpeg +png +gtk2 -unicode

and when i upgraded it it said to run /dev-lang/python/files/python-updater to "rebuild all the python dependent modules to run with python-2.3".

Hi,
esync doesn't work in my box:
Code:
esync # ./esync
 * Getting old portage tree
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./esync", line 21, in ?
    tree_old = gettree("old")
  File "./esync", line 13, in gettree
    os.symlink("/var/cache/edb/esearchdb.pyc", tree + "tree.pyc")
OSError: [Errno 17] File exists


If i remove oldtree.pyc:
Code:

[root@Gentoo] -14:04- esync # ./esync
 * Getting old portage tree
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./esync", line 21, in ?
    tree_old = gettree("old")
  File "./esync", line 15, in gettree
    from oldtree import db
ImportError: Bad magic number in ./oldtree.pyc


Is it possible that it's related with the new version of python? I have:
Code:


esync # emerge -pv python wxPython

and when i upgraded it it said to run /dev-lang/python/files/python-updater to "rebuild all the python dependent modules to run with python-2.3".

same, i just noticed it today!

Hi,

This is really a problem of Python. Compiled python scripts (.pyc) from 2.2 are not compatible with the .pyc's from python 2.3.
Please edit the first line of the esync script and change it to:

Code:

#!/usr/bin/python -u

or download the new version from the old URL (see first post).

The -u switch is for unbuffered output. With this you're able to do:
Code:

$ esync | tee esync.log


@spooch: Maybe I'll release it with the next version of esearch

@fkurth: This is a "problem" of esearch, I will fix that in the next version, thanks.

David

Nice script indeed :)

I was doing something quite similar with a command line :
Code:
esearch -o '[ ! -z "%vi" -a "%vi" != "%va" ] && echo "%p\t\t%vi -> %va"\n' . | sh

It's not as beautifull (it is very straightforward), but it can run separately from "emerge sync;eupdatedb".

Hey, what about an option to esync that says "don't update the tree, just scan the old log" ?
