Re: [PLUG] rpm on command line

Actually, try:

rpm -qil <package> | less

I don't usually use RPM but I'm not a "purist" either so, try:

rpm -ql <package name>

I often use rpm on the command line as opposed to the Gnome RPM program.
There is something in Gnome RPM which I can't figure out how to do on
the command line......

In Gnome RPM, you can query the rpm file (Install / Add / Query) which
gives you a list of the contents and other stuff.    If I run "rpm -q
x.rpm", I dont' get the same thing, I just get an acknowledgement of
whether it's installed & what version.

To put the question in one sentence:  How do I get the same RPM info via
command line?
