First let me declare that I’m new to CentOS. The folowing is a note to self which demonstrates how we search for a package that provides some commands and intall it using yum on CentOS.
When I ran ‘lsb_release -a’, the following message is returned:
-bash: lsb_release: command not found
To fix it, we need to install the package which provides lsb_release command.
# yum provides */lsb_release ... redhat-lsb-4.0-3.el6.centos.i686 : LSB base libraries support for CentOS Repo : base Matched from: Filename : /usr/bin/lsb_release redhat-lsb-4.0-3.el6.centos.x86_64 : LSB base libraries support for CentOS Repo : base Matched from: Filename : /usr/bin/lsb_release dkms-126.96.36.199-2.el6.noarch : Dynamic Kernel Module Support Framework Repo : epel Matched from: Filename : /usr/lib/dkms/lsb_release
So, let’s install redhat-lsb package:
# yum install redhat-lsb ... Transaction Summary ========================================================== Install 106 Package(s) Total download size: 86 M Installed size: 246 M Is this ok [y/N]: ...
Wow, the insalled size of 246 M? No, it’s not ok.
Corrected typo in this post, thanks to Shawn:
