Yum groupinstall


#1

Hi guys,
We don’t have groupinstall available. I re-raised issue on github, since it
was open in Jira. No feedback since.

Can someone advice if it’s a worthy idea to write this?
I’ve got some time and desire to do it, but only if it’s needed - yum
provider functionality is huge, and it needs a lot of work to include
metapackages…

groupinstall isn’t idempotent so it makes no sense as a resource, your best bet is to just use an execute resource:

execute ‘yum groupinstall whatever’ do
user 'root’
end

Eh, handling response?
In the nutshell - we have yum, we just need another set of logic for
arguments after groupinstall.
