Install.log

Post by random » 2014/08/02 16:43:42

Previous versions of CentOS created a file install.log in /root showing what had been installed.

As I found that to be very handy, I am wondering if it has been moved, or just gone, and if so is there a way to enable it again?

Any help appreciated.

Check in /var/log/anaconda specifically the file anaconda.packaging.log should contain that info and more.

# man rpm gives several rpm query options and formatting, including --last
(which I find helpful) listing by install time such that the latest packages are at the top.

So . . . good results for me to show all installed (with date timestamp)

Code: Select all

# rpm -qa --last | less

Thanks guys. I ended up using "yum list installed > yum-install-list"
