Default Centos 5 Perfect Install with SSH

Hi,

I want to do the Centos 5 perfect install, but my dedicated server I'm getting only gives you "SSH only install" and you are on your own after that.

So what do I need to install with YUM to get started doing the Perfect Install? Basically I don't have the option of selecting the packages from the OS install, and need to add them after the fact before I can get started doing the Perfect install. Thanks for your help.

Default Here's one way

I'm sure there's a much easier way to do what you want but I'll offer one solution.

Look at the install log on your system:
/root/install.log

It will show everything that was installed when your system was initially set up.

Compare that to my install log (attached) that was done exactly as the perfect setup CentOS 5 specified about 2 weeks ago.

Exclamation Here's the easy way!

I just remembered the easy way.

SSH into your system and type

Code:
 
yum grouplist
This will display all of the installed groups on your system.
The perfect install includes all of these:
Code:
 
Installed Groups:
   MySQL Database
   Development Libraries
   Editors
   System Tools
   Text-based Internet
   DNS Name Server
   Dialup Networking Support
   Network Servers
   Graphics
   Web Server
   Windows File Server
   Printing Support
   Mail Server
   Server Configuration Tools
   Administration Tools
   Yum Utilities
If you are missing anything then just do
Code:
 
yum groupinstall 'missing_groupname'
Replace 'missing_groupname' with the name of the missing group.

If your really bored, you still might enjoy looking through the 600+ line list in my previous post.

Wpwood3, that is fantastic... Thank you !!

Just out of curiosity, when I install those groups I do want all the packages included in each group correct? I mean is there stuff in each group that I should not be installing? And if so, how do I avoid them?

Thanks again !!
