RHEL 6 Installation Options

May 13, 2013

red hat

Okay – Configuring another RHEL 6 KVM Host to throw in the rack alongside all the VMware ESXi hosts. While I was about to start with the basic core server and only install the packages I wanted afterwards, I thought I’d see what all the options were from the RHEL 6 boot DVD.

Took me a bit of searching, but here’s what I found.  These are the options when first booting from the RHEL 6 ISO or DVD and the packages that get installed with each choice:

Desktop: base, basic-desktop, core, debugging, desktop-debugging, desktop-platform, directory-client, fonts, general-desktop, graphical-admin-tools, input-methods, internet-applications, internet-browser, java-platform, legacy-x, network-file-system-client, office-suite, print-client, remote-desktop-clients, server-platform, x11.

Minimal Desktop: base, basic-desktop, core, debugging, desktop-debugging, desktop-platform, directory-client, fonts, input-methods, internet-browser, java-platform, legacy-x, network-file-system-client, print-client, remote-desktop-clients, server-platform, x11.

Minimal: core.

Basic Server: base, console-internet, core, debugging, directory-client, hardware-monitoring, java-platform, large-systems, network-file-system-client, performance, perl-runtime, server-platform.

Database Server: base, console-internet, core, debugging, directory-client, hardware-monitoring, java-platform, large-systems, network-file-system-client, performance, perl-runtime, server-platform, mysql-client, mysql, postgresql-client, postgresql, system-admin-tools.

Web Server: base, console-internet, core, debugging, directory-client, java-platform, mysql-client, network-file-system-client, performance, perl-runtime, php, postgresql-client, server-platform, turbogears, web-server, web-servlet.

Virtual Host: base, console-internet, core, debugging, directory-client, hardware-monitoring, java-platform, large-systems, network-file-system-client, performance, perl-runtime, server-platform, virtualization, virtualization-client, virtualization-platform.

Software Development Workstation: additional-devel, base, basic-desktop, core, debugging, desktop-debugging, desktop-platform, desktop-platform-devel, development, directory-client, eclipse, emacs, fonts, general-desktop, graphical-admin-tools, graphics, input-methods, internet-browser, java-platform, legacy-x, network-file-system-client, performance, perl-runtime, print-client, remote-desktop-clients, server-platform, server-platform-devel, technical-writing, tex, virtualization, virtualization-client, virtualization-platform, x11.

After finding this I think most of the packages I need are indeed in the RHEL Virtual Host installation option (side note: CentOS 6 installation options are identical) is what I’ll start with.  🙂

Alright – back to server config!  Hope this helps someone.

Hmmmmm   .  .  .  next I think I’ll write up how to configure a Kickstart repository   .  .  .
