I am looking for an online list of the standard packages available for CentOS Linux.

I know that if I had a CentOs system running, I could use yum to list packages. However, I am trying to evaluate what roadblocks we will run into, when we switch our webservers from Ubuntu to CentOS, and I don't yet have a CentOS setup.

I've searched and searched, but all I can find are explanations of how to manage packages once you actually have a CentOS system setup. Any website recommendations would be appreciated.

I started with this, which got me a list of CentOS mirrors, and then picked the first mirror.

Here's a list of packages for CentOS 6.

If the particular mirror lsited here is dead, you can simply find another mirror by returning to the list of mirrors and follow the same logic.

This mirror seems to be kept up-to-date: http://mirror.centos.org/centos/7/os/x86_64/Packages/


See https://pkgs.org/ which allows you to search a range of CentOS (and other) distributions.


take a look at any mirror
