5.15. YUM Software Groups

Now we will review the yum commands and configurations related to software groups that are certainly very useful and refer to the yum system's ability to handle the listing, installing, upgrading or removing software groups in a single yum transaction.
The general syntax for yum commands available for groups is:
* groupinstall group1 [group2] [...]
* groupupdate group1 [group2] [...]
* grouplist [hidden] [groupwildcard] [...]
* groupremove group1 [group2] [...]
* groupinfo group1 [...]
Alternatively you can use the following base commands by specifying the group name prefixed by the "@ " to indicate that this is a group name instead of a package name.
* install @group1 [@group2] [...]
* update @group1 [@group2] [...]
* remove @group1 [@group2] [...]
