Additional packages for Minion modules

Name: Additional settings for Minion moudules
Description: Completing CentOS installation to run some minion modules
Modification date :20/05/2019
Notify changes to: sysadmin

I'm done with this cause all the github issues from saltstack repo indicate a bug on the minion side…
