-h, --help

show this help message and exit

-f FORMAT, --format=FORMAT

yum, kickstart or human; yum gives the result as a yum command line; kickstart the content of a %packages section; "human" readable is default.

-i INPUT, --input=INPUT

File to read the package list from instead of using the rpmdb. - for stdin. The file must contain package names only separated by white space (including newlines). rpm -qa --qf='%{name}\n' produces proper output.

File to write the result to. Stdout is used if option is omitted.

-q, --quiet

Do not show warnings.

-e, --no-excludes

Only show groups that are installed completely. Do not use exclude lines.


Print exclude lines at the end and not after the groups requiring them.


Print package names at the end and not after the groups offering them as addon.


Also show groups not selected to sort packages contained by them. Those groups are commented out with a "# " at the begin of the line.

-m, --allow-mandatories

Check if just installing the mandatory packages gives better results. Uses "." to mark those groups.

-a, --allow-all

Check if installing all packages in the groups gives better results. Uses "*" to mark those groups.


Ignore packages missing in the repos.


Do not produce exclude lines for packages not in the repository.
