4.11. Package Data

4.11.1. Base Packages

Information about the base SIMP packages is best gathered from the simp RPM and the RPM metadata on your system.

The dependencies for the simp RPM are those that are required for basic SIMP functionality and may be obtained as follows from an installed system:

for x in `rpm -q --requires simp | cut -f 1 -d' '`; do
  rpm -q --qf "%{NAME} %{VERSION}\n" $x | grep -v 'not installed';
done

The dependencies for the simp-extras RPM are those that are not required for basic SIMP functionality and may be obtained as follows from an installed system:

for x in `rpm -q --requires simp-extras | cut -f 1 -d' '`; do
  rpm -q --qf "%{NAME} %{VERSION}\n" $x | grep -v 'not installed';
done

4.11.2. External Packages

Quite a few external packages are available to, and used by, the SIMP infrastructure.

These are defined, with sources, per OS and architecture in the packages.yaml files under the build directory in the simp-core repository.

To find the particular package list for your version of SIMP, you can go to:

https://github.com/simp/simp-core/blob/<version>/build/distributions/<os>/<os_version>/<arch>/yum_data/packages.yaml

So, if you’re using SIMP 6.0.0 on CentOS 6 and an x86_64 architecture, you would navigate to:

https://github.com/simp/simp-core/blob/6.0.0/build/distributions/CentOS/6/x86_64/yum_data/packages.yaml
