list all installed package and automate install

Recommended Posts

I've been experiencing of troubles in Mandriva and it's very tired to reinstall everything manually.

 

I wonder if there is any way to list all installed packages and automate it with any program.

RpmDrake doesn't support this.

rpm -qa

(It's a long list, you might want to pipe it to a file). I'm not sure what you want to automate?

I use these two bash scripts

#!/bin/bash
rpm -qa --qf '%{NAME}\n' | sort > mypkgs.txt

to list all installed packages before a reinstall and

#!/bin/sh
urpmi.update -a
while read line; do
 urpmi --auto $line
done <  mypkgs.txt

after a minimal install and setting up sources.

 

I've used it several times to go back to 2008.1 after trying 2009.0 and 2009.1.
