Style does one simple thing, it make the Linux box look like I think it should look like.

Module Description

This module implement the basic settings I would like to find on every Linux box after a minimal install. So, this module install some basic packages and add some aliases I use often.


What style affects

  • Install dmidecode, dstat, iftop, iotop, htop, ncftp, nmap, redhat-lsb, rsync, screen, strace, tree, unzip, vim-enhanced, wget, xorg-x11-xauth
  • Install /etc/

Setup requirements

You need to activate the EPEL repository before you can setup the SSMTP instance. If you use a rpm based system from the RedHat family you can use my yum module (thbe-yum):

class { "::yum": repo_epel => true }

Beginning with style

Simply include the class and you are done.


include '::style'
