CentOS/Redhat kickstart packages


Hi,

I am trying to create my own kickstart script and google around the web this is what i have.

type yum grouplist then you will know what package available(In text). However it is the the exact package string as what i see in the kickstart.

Example:

%packages --resolvedeps
@ compat-arch-development
@ engineering-and-scientific
@ admin-tools
@ editors
@ emacs
@ system-tools
@ gnome-software-development
@ text-internet
@ x-software-development
@ gnome-desktop
@ authoring-and-publishing
@ compat-arch-support
@ legacy-software-development
@ base-x
@ kde-software-development
@ development-tools
@ graphical-internet
kernel-smp
kernel-devel
sysstat
kernel-smp-devel
iptraf
e2fsprogs
expect
nedit
autofs5
net-snmp
ncompress
-nmap
-zsh
-mozilla-chat
-gaim
-openldap-clients
-xchat
-xdelta
-open
-autofs

I wanted to explore more on the @package available for centOS 4.6 & 5.0 but the manual found was very brief. It didnt mention how to get the correct string like @base-x . Can anyone please advice how to get the @package with the correct string i want?

thank you

hi,

one of the package is :
@ graphical-internet

So, i need to know how to get this package name & what contain in the package. We can see this easily in GUI manual installation.
