remembering package selection in RedHat
Posted on 2001-08-08
I'm a bit of a Red Hat rookie, but pretty familiar with computers. I've done a number of RH installs over the last couple years and have found one thing really annoying: going through every single package and deciding individually which I want and which I don't. I pretty much already know what I want, but I have to look for everything with each install. Is there any way that once I've selected all the packages that I want I can somehow save this config like to a floppy or something then the next time I'm installing RH, just pop in this floppy and have that config pop up? Then when my personal default config has popped up I can finalize a few of the packages I want on that system that are specific to the machine. Hopefully this thing checks for all the dependencies before saving the config :) thanks for your help and ttyl,
post script - I'll be doing RH 7.1 installs in the future from now on. The last one I actually did was a RH 7.0 install.
