yum-groups-manager - Man Page

Name

yum-groups-manager ā€” redirecting to DNF groups-manager Plugin

Create and edit groups repository metadata files.

Synopsis

dnf groups-manager [options] [package-name-spec [package-name-spec ...]]

Description

groups-manager plugin is used to create or edit a group metadata file for a repository. This is often much easier than writing/editing the XML by hand. The groups-manager can load an entire file of groups metadata and either create a new group or edit an existing group and then write all of the groups metadata back out.

Arguments

<package-name-spec>

Package to add to a group or remove from a group.

Options

All general DNF options are accepted, see Options in dnf(8) for details.

--load=<path_to_comps.xml>

Load the groups metadata information from the specified file before performing any operations. Metadata from all files are merged together if the option is specified multiple times.

--save=<path_to_comps.xml>

Save the result to this file. You can specify the name of a file you are loading from as the data will only be saved when all the operations have been performed. This option can also be specified multiple times.

--merge=<path_to_comps.xml>

This is the same as loading and saving a file, however the "merge" file is loaded before any others and saved last.

--print

Also print the result to stdout.

--id=<id>

The id to lookup/use for the group. If you don't specify an <id>, but do specify a name that doesn't refer to an existing group, then an id for the group is generated based on the name.

-n <name>, --name=<name>

The name to lookup/use for the group. If you specify an existing group id, then the group with that id will have it's name changed to this value.

--description=<description>

The description to use for the group.

--display-order=<display_order>

Change the integer which controls the order groups are presented in, for example in dnf grouplist.
