linux yum groups

Create a file in the groups format used by yum
Tell createrepo to include that group file in your repository.
Step 1

You can either open a text editor and create the groups xml file manually or you can run the yum-groups-manager command from yum-utils.

Run the groups-create command like this:

yum-groups-manager -n "My Group" --id=mygroup --save=mygroups.xml --mandatory rpm1 rpm2

And you'll end up with a file like this:

My group

glibc rpm yum

Step 2

To include this in a repository, just tell createrepo to use it when making or remaking your repository.

createrepo -g /path/to/mygroups.xml /srv/my/repo
