Missing groups or modules: idm:DL1

Hi there as in the subject. Is there any way to fix it?
root@localhost ~]# dnf module enable idm:DL1

What do you get with: dnf module list idm ?

[root@localhost ~]# dnf module list idm

What version of Rocky? Rocky 9 doesn’t have IDM modules - assuming you are running Rocky 9 right now. The command works on Rocky 8 though.

Let me try with Rocky8

Rocky 9 does have IDM packages. Just not as a “module stream”.


Red Hat introduced “dnf modules”, the Application Streams in el8 and went totally overboard with it – everything and their cousin is a separate stream in el8. With el9 they are much more conservative; a thing is a stream only when absolutely necessary.

Yes, it did work on Rocky8! Thanx

Technically.

However you should consider what and why you were doing. Apparently: “installing IDM”.

A statement that it is not possible to install IDM on Rocky 9 is false.
One just has to do it differently than in Rocky 8.
