How to install bulk packages using yum with groupinstall?


Sometimes, if you forgot to select "Development Tools" during Fedora/CentOS installations, you can add them later by using one command

yum groupinstall "Development Tools"

Which save you a lot of times from installing the needed packages one by one.

To see what options are available for groupinstall, try

yum grouplist
