Arrow repository list and list of installed applications?

I understand there is a file that stores the repositories' information, but I can't find it!

Is there a way I can create a list of what applications have been installed?

The idea is that if I am running a backup, finding a way to save the repository list and applications installed so if I am upgrading, or fixing a borked system by re-installing Fedora, I could copy the repo list back, and run the applications list like
Code:
yum install <cat apps.txt?>
and get all of the applications I've installed via Yum without having to remember them all?


Is there anything else, outside of /home, I should look at backing up? SELinux settings?

Oh, that is just waaaaay too easy!

So I am thinking if I do
Code:
yum list installed > ~/Desktop/applist.txt
to make a list, and then
Code:
yum install cat ~/Desktop/applist.txt
to install them all that may work? Might depend on if the list is horizontile
Code:
gimp inkscape empathy ...
or vertical
Code:
gimp
inkscape
empathy
...

Just get the vertical list and then
yum install $(cat somefile.txt)
you can leave this file "as is" or try to remove everything except first column using awk

Re: repository list and list of installed applications?

How can I find which repositories are installed? I mean, how can I see a list of repositories and check whether they are enabled or not ?

Re: repository list and list of installed applications?

Just a note about that site: The "restore" command to reinstall packages found in a text file is extremely inefficient. It will attempt to run "yum install $software" once for each piece of software - that's easily 500+ times, and if packages pull in others as dependencies you're bound to have many redundancies.

Keldorn previously wrote the better method, by using the output of the "cat" as a command line argument to yum:
Code:
yum install $(cat installed-software.log)
This way yum will run once, figuring out the dependencies needed and installing all packages together. Quicker to run and less load on the mirrors!
