Description Fred Feirtag 1999-11-04 23:06:50 UTC
If disk space is no problem, it's sure nice to just install
all rpm's.  Accordingly, there should be an "everything"
component.  I run the following script to make a "comps"
file that has an "everything" I can reference from my
ks.cfg file:
#!/bin/csh -f

# makes an "everything" component in ../base/comps

set newcomps = /tmp/comps

sed '/^0 everything/q' ../base/comps.orig     >! $newcomps

echo ''                                       >> $newcomps
echo '0 everything {'                         >> $newcomps

foreach rpm (*.rpm)
  rpm --queryformat '%{NAME}\n' -qp $rpm | \
    sed 's/^/  /'                             >> $newcomps

echo '}'                                      >> $newcomps

Seems like an "everything" should come as an option without
having to do this or list all components/packages--
Please correct me if it does in some way I haven't though
