NOTE: CentOS Enterprise Linux is built from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux source code. Other than logo and name changes CentOS Enterprise Linux is compatible with the equivalent Red Hat version. This document applies equally to both Red Hat and CentOS Enterprise Linux.

4.23. Package Group Selection

Now that you have made most of the choices for your installation, you are ready to confirm the default package selection or customize packages for your system.

The Package Installation Defaults screen appears and details the default package set for your Red Hat Enterprise Linux installation. This screen varies depending on the version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux you are installing.

If you choose to accept the current package list, skip ahead to Section 4.24 Preparing to Install.

To customize your package set further, select Customize the set of packages to be installed option on the screen. Clicking Next takes you to the Package Group Selection screen.

You can select package groups, which group components together according to function (for example, X Window System and Editors), individual packages, or a combination of the two.

NoteNote
 

Users of AMD64, Intel® EM64T, and Itanium systems who want support for developing or running 32-bit applications are encouraged to select the Compatibility Arch Support and Compatibility Arch Development Support packages to install architecure specific support for their systems.

To select a component, click on the checkbox beside it (refer to Figure 4-22).

Figure 4-22. Package Group Selection

Select each component you wish to install. Selecting Everything (at the end of the component list) installs all packages included with Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Once a package group has been selected, click on Details to view which packages are installed by default, and to add or remove optional packages from that group.
