View Full Version : YDL Question, adding packages

29th December 2004, 10:53 PM
the YDL forum appears to be weak.

here what i am facing and what i am trying.

i installed YDL on a ibook P1 tangerine g3 300. upon specifying the packages to be installed i included on admin tools and gnome desktop enviroment.

even though my yum works, i cant run some apps such as mozilla becuase i did not install the graphical internet packages. i also cant use the command system-config-packages to add packages.

so basically im trying find a way to get these packages installed on the machine. i dont know if there is a yum command for adding these packages, or what i can do to get the system to run an add packages program off my cds.

any ideas?

system-config-packages is a Fedora concept, unless YDL has copied it.

yum install mozilla should work, but it does not install a bunch of things at once. You may want to check out the groupinstall option in the yum man page.

if only it was that easy Jman. My yum is ok as is, and i did download mozilla using it, but when i launch mozilla, nothing happenns at all. i believe this is due to the fact that my installation was less than 800mb and had basically as little as possible to run. as of now, i have internet connectivity, but no means of opening mozilla browser.

ill try the group install.

is there any way i can look and see what packages are installed when you choose the graphical internet option? that way i can yum or apt them one by one.
