- How to install a group of packages with yum on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
You can use the option
yum grouplist command to list available package groups. The option
groupinstall is used to install a group of packages. However, the
yum grouplist command can't list all the groups that are provided when installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux from the installation CDs. There is a hidden option can resolve this problem. For example, the Chinese Support group is hidden.
For example, to see all groups, including hidden groups, run the following command:
# yum grouplist hidden
This will show a list of all available package groups, including Chinese Support.
To install the packages under a specific group you can execute the command :
# yum groupinstall "<group name>"
# yum groupinstall "Chinese Support" # yum groupinstall "KDE (K Desktop Environment)"
Please note that the group name has to be in quotation marks.
