Raspberry Pi Journal #31

Package List and Update

So, the Foundation finally updated their package list. Naturally, I'm curious as to what changes are afoot. So, I did what is natural. I simply dump all package names with what I have right now. I call it pack1.txt

apt-cache pkgnames >pack1.txt

Then I do an update and dump all the package names into pack2.txt

apt-get update
apt-cache pkgnames >pack2.txt

Finally, I did a diff between the two.

diff pack1.txt pack2.txt

And all the new package names appear, just like that!


The update also mention SonicPi, and searching for it yields sonic-pi package name.

apt-cache search sonic
apt-cache show sonic-pi
