Mark Command

Synopsis

dnf5 mark <subcommand> [global options] [<group-id>] <package-spec>...

Description

The mark command in DNF5 is used to change reason of installed packages defined in package-spec arguments.

Subcommands

user
Mark the package as user-installed.

This can be useful if any package was installed as a dependency and is desired to stay on the system when remove command along with clean_requirements_on_remove configuration option set to True is executed.

dependency
Mark the package as a dependency.

This can be useful if you as the user don't need a specific package. The package stays installed on the system, but will be removed when remove command along with clean_requirements_on_remove configuration option set to True is executed.

You should use this operation instead of remove command if you're not sure whether the package is a requirement of other user installed package on the system.

weak
Mark the package as a weak dependency.
group
Mark the package as installed by the group defined in group-id argument.

This can be useful if any package was installed as a dependency or the user and is desired to be protected and handled as a group member like during group remove command.

Examples

dnf5 mark user fuse-devel
Mark the fuse-devel package as user-installed.
dnf5 mark group xfce-desktop vim-enhanced
Mark the vim-enhanced package as installed by the xfce-desktop group.
