    Command to install a group of related packages?


    I had a bookmark on my browser that took me to a tutorial on how to use the command line to install a group of related files/packages off the Internet. I am new so I am probably being a little vague in my description but any help to try and find out what I am looking for would be great. Thank you.

    LOL!



    See! I am such a newbie. That "group" install command I used last week was on a Fedora Core distro. I don't think it will work for my new Mandrake distro.

    You can use URPMI to install a set of packages. You can find the tutorial here:

    Scroll down to where it talks about URPM

    Good luck!
