Most general package management is done with the following commands:
- xbps-query(1) displays information
about packages installed locally, or, with the
-Rflag, packages contained in repositories.
- xbps-install(1) installs and updates packages, and syncs repository indexes.
- xbps-remove(1) removes installed packages, and can remove cached package files.
Most questions can be answered by consulting the man pages for these tools. For a more detailed overview of the X Binary Package System (XBPS), see the documentation in the xbps repository.
