[CentOS] Find installed yum groups?
Apr 27, 2015 at 4:58 pm

: Yes. "yum grouplist" will tell you the groups that are currently in the installed state. Worth reading the manpage to see exactly what yum thinks that "installed" means: Groups are marked as "installed" if all mandatory packages are installed, or if a group doesn?t have any mandatory packages then it is installed if any of the optional or default package are installed.

: But, I think that is a YUM database and not based on the RPM database, so it is possible that you can have all the RPMs for a group installed and not actually have it listed as installed. At least I sometimes find myself in that position. But I also wipe out /var/cache/yum/ sometimes. -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...

: Interesting, but it seems to _only_ show groups that weren't included in the anaconda install. For example where the saved anaconda-ks-cfg shows @gnome-desktop and @development, 'yum grouplist' only shows 'MATE Desktop' which was installed later. What I am looking for is a succinct way to duplicate the full installed package list that exists on an organically-developed developed system (that is, where people added things until it all worked), so equivalent systems can be created by a minimal
