README.md

metalog.lua is a script that reads METALOG file created by pkgbase (make packages) and generates reports about the installed system and issues

the script accepts an mtree file in a format that's returned by mtree -c | mtree -C

synopsis:

metalog_reader.lua [-h] [-a | -c | -p [-count] [-size] [-f...]] [-W...] [-v] metalog-path

options:

  • -a prints all scan results. this is the default option if no option is provided.
  • -c lints the file and gives warnings/errors, including duplication and conflicting metadata
    • -Wcheck-notagdir entries with dir type and no tags will be also included the first time they appear (1)
  • -p list all package names found in the file as exactly specified by tags=package=...
    • -count display the number of files of the package
    • -size display the size of the package
    • -fsetgid only include packages with setgid files
    • -fsetuid only include packages with setuid files
    • -fsetid only include packages with setgid or setuid files
  • -v verbose mode
  • -h help page

some examples:

  • metalog_reader.lua -a METALOG prints all scan results described below. this is the default option
  • metalog_reader.lua -c METALOG only prints errors and warnings found in the file
  • metalog_reader.lua -c -Wcheck-notagdir METALOG prints errors and warnings found in the file, including directories with no tags
  • metalog_reader.lua -p METALOG only prints all the package names found in the file
  • metalog_reader.lua -p -count -size METALOG prints all the package names, followed by number of files, followed by total size
  • metalog_reader.lua -p -size -fsetid METALOG prints packages that has either setuid/setgid files, followed by the total size
  • metalog_reader.lua -p -fsetuid -fsetgid METALOG prints packages that has both setuid and setgid files (if more than one filters are specified, they are composed using logic and)
  • metalog_reader.lua -p -count -size -fsetuid METALOG prints packages that has setuid files, followed by number of files and total size

(1) if we have two entries

./bin type=dir uname=root gname=wheel mode=0755
./bin type=dir uname=root gname=wheel mode=0755 tags=...

by default, this is not warned. if the option is enabled, this will be warned as the second line sufficiently covers the first line.
