list installed package on CentOS, without formatting overhead

+1 vote
57 views

In order to make the same installation on two servers where all was installed via yum/rpm, I want to dump a list of all installed packages on the first server.

My problem is if I just "yum list installed", some weird formatting prints packages information on 2 lines...
I have to

 # yum list installed | awk '{print $1}' 
 | grep -v '@' | grep -vE '^[0-9]'

Is there a cleaner way?

 # rpm -aq

Is not OK because it includes version in a way it's more hard to parse just the package name.

During yum upgrade a couple days ago, I saw this:

Cleanup : kernel-3.10.0-229.20.1.el7.x86_64  35/64
warning: file /lib/modules/3.10.0-229.20.1.el7.x86_64/modules.softdep: 
remove failed: No such file or directory
warning: file /lib/modules/3.10.0-229.20.1.el7.x86_64/modules.devname: 
remove failed: No such file or directory

Should I be concerned about this? What could have caused it?

I have a machine that recently had some file system corruption. fsck was able repair the file system but I am getting the following error when I try to do yum update:

[Errno 21] Is a directory: '/var/lib/yum/yumdb/e/2f883c08e3b596b66fcc19c6b4d73b11c9aaa43e-e2fsprogs-1.41.12-14.el6_4.2-x86_64/checksum_type'

In searching Google, some suggested renaming the yumdb but that just results in a traceback when I run yum.

There are some files in lost+found but I am not sure what the above file should look like and inode numbers are not useful to me.

Anyone have an idea how to fix this without reloading the machine?

Is there an 'after the fact' way to find what yum groups are installed, including ones that were added with 'yum groupinstall' instead of the initial anaconda install?

I am having problems with a CentOS 6.4 box that I was in the process of doing a yum update to 6.5. Unfortunately the system hung during the update and I was forced to reboot it and it is now a bit of a mess.

Can someone point me in the direction of any documentation that would assist in the recovering from this.

If I add priority=1 to [updates] in CentOS-Base.repo
when I run "sudo yum update" I get the warning 66 packages excluded due to repository priority protections

This does not seem to have any adverse effect, but what exactly does it mean?
