Summary 0003990: pkgutil 1.8: -c/-C do not only compare CSW packages
Description pkgutil 1.8 seems to compare non-CSW packages also. This is extremely irritating when running with -C to see which CSW packages would be updated. Is this intended behavior (couldn't see anything related in the changelog)?

# pkgutil -v
# pkgutil -C
SUNWbzip 11.10.0,REV=2005. not in catalog
SUNWcacaodtrace 2.1.0,REV=2007.02.15 not in catalog
SUNWcacaort 2.0,REV=15 not in catalog
SUNWcadp 11.10.0,REV=2005. not in catalog
SUNWcakr 11.10.0,REV=2005. not in catalog

I know that i can work around it by using "pkgutil -C CSW".

Interesting, i just ran pkgutil 1.8 on another system and there it works as expected. -C only includes CSW packages for comparison purposes. Any idea why this could be?

I guess you have noncsw=true in pkgutil.conf and then you have kind of volunteered for this. :-) As you mentioned, it's easy to filter the output of -a/c/C.

Spot on, thanks for clearing up my confusion! Could you maybe extend the description of noncsw in the man page? I activated noncsw to be able to install self-built, site-specific packages and somehow didn't realize that this does not only affect installation but operations like -C also.

I have tried to clarify it in pkgutil.conf now with an extra note about this (and how to filter it if wanted).
