Package Handling

The Server XR has an adapted version of Kwort Linux 2.4.

Kwort uses kpkg as package manager, this application is quite easy to use, here are some examples:
  • Update database:
kpkg mantains a database of packages which is a replicate of the database at a certain server, to update your database you need to do
kpkg update

If you are using more than one repository then you just can do:
kpkg update all
  • Install:
To install a package that's in your database you need to do:
kpkg install <package>
  • Search:
Search allows you to search the packages database to find a certain package.
kpkg search <package name, or part of it>
  • Upgrade packages:
To be sure you are always using the latest available packages you should call:
kpkg upgrade

Take into account that the upgrade process is not 100% accurate and we're working together with the kwort team to make it as accurate as possible. So we always suggest you to take a look of the package list before saying yes to the upgrade process.


Repositories:
Right now you should be using mainly two repositories for the Server XR one is the default kwort server which is: ftp://200.3.124.37/pub, the other one is the one provided by us at: http://kwort.aircable.net.

In order to setup your system and start using our repository you need to do (devices running December 08 or later releases don't need this step):

export MIRROR="kwort.aircable.net" MIRROR_PATH="repository/" MIRROR_PROTOCOL="http://"; kpkg update
