Hi all,

Last week I did a new install from 7.4 DVD ISO and started going through the usual customization process when I bumped into the fact that the "MATE Desktop Group" is now missing from the EPEL repository.

The following command used to work (7.1-7.4)

yum groups install "MATE Desktop"

I've try "yum grouplist" to confirm it is gone.

Doe anyone know anything about what happened?


Thank you in advance!

MATE is available. You need to add "hidden" to the yum command like so:

CODE
yum grouplist hidden


and to see the packages:

CODE
yum groupinfo MATE

Wonderful! (so much I don't know/understand about yum---hidden?).

Thank you for your assistance toracat.
