List Installed Packaged, Without Formatting Overhead

Hi all,

In order to make the same installation on two servers where all was installed via yum/rpm, I want to dump a list of all installed packages on the first server.

My problem is if I just “yum list installed”, some weird formatting prints packages information on 2 lines… I have to

# yum list installed | awk ‘{print $1}’ \
| grep -v ‘@’ | grep -vE ‘^[0-9]’

Is there a cleaner way?
# rpm -aq Is not OK because it includes version in a way it’s more hard to parse just the package name.

Thank you.
