Drill Down into CentOS/RHEL Base Environment and Add-Ons Software Package Groups

At the Installation Summary Screen of CentOS7/RHEL7 (GUI mode), you can click on the Software Selection option to choose pre-defined groups of software packages to install with the operating system. These pre-defined groups are expressed in the form of a Base Environments, and their related Add-Ons.

Each pre-defined group of software packages are related to the server’s main purpose (as defined in the Base Environment option). The Add-Ons are additional software packages that complement it. The Add-Ons list is dependent on the Base Environment selected.

While the Software Selection screen provides a high level overview of the type of software packages installed, we can drill down further to the exact software packages to be installed.

  • On the RHEL installation source, the file can be found at “/repodata/*-comps-variant.architecture.xml”.
  • For CentOS, the file located in the same directory, but with a not so obvious name. To determine which is the right one, open each file in a text editor that will correctly interpret the XML file, but not the other binary files.

The remainder of this post comprises of:

  • Table 1: CentOS 7’s (Everything ISO) Base Environment and Add-Ons options,
  • Table 2: Mandatory groups that each Base Environment include, and
  • Table 3: List of software packages that are installed for each group

Note: While I strive to ensure that all information is correctly represented in the tables below, do note that there may be errors and or discrepancies when it comes to different versions of the OS. It is best to refer to the installation source directly.

Enjoy!
