Thread: What is the equivalent of @everything (compared to RHEL) in SUSE ?

    Default What is the equivalent of @everything (compared to RHEL) in SUSE ?

    Hi,
    Recently I got a requirement to update the kickstart file in Suse to install all the available packages by default during provisioning. I have been doing this in RHEL by using the macro @everything.
    Could some body help me to get an equivalent of @everything for package installation in SUSE.

    Thanks,
    Sunil.

    let me understand: you want to install _everything_ available?
    everything from where? the official openSUSE repos? all of them??? do
    you want the education packages? the Tumbleweed packages? would you want
    the packman packages or not?

    WAIT, since you mention RHEL, are you in an enterprise setting and using
    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) or Desktop (SLED)?

    if that is so, you are of course welcome to hang out here and see if
    someone has a good answer for you...but, be advised that most (almost
    all?) here have never run SLES/D....and, while there is kinship between
    the two, SLES/D and openSUSE are absolutely NOT identical twins...(we
    are the 'Fedora' to SLE_)

    check exactly what you are using with one of these:

    Code:
    cat /etc/SuSE-release
    cat /etc/issue
    and if using the enterprise version you will most likely get _the_
    best answer over in forums.novell.com, it is they who produce and
    support the SLE products..
