Add a package group using up2date command

Posted on in Categories last updated August 27, 2006

Q. How can I add a package group using up2date command?

A. Update Agent provides a complete system for updating the RPM packages installed on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux system. Both command line and graphical interfaces are included.

Task: Install group package

For example install all Development Tools package i.e. gcc c/c++ compiler and related libs:

Login as root and type the following command:
# up2date -i "@ Development Tools"

Task: List group packages

# up2date --show-groups | more

Read man page of up2date for more information. Please note that above command only works with RHEL version 4.0.
