extract single file from rpm

Is there a way of extracting a single file from an rpm fileset? A verification shows some files missing and I want to recover them, but uninstall/reinstall or install overwrite would be very dangerous in some of these cases (eg: Lilo).

Re: extract single file from rpm

Hello Tim !

Have a look at the script rpm-get attached to this post.

rpm-get is part of a package called rpm-utils. Maybe you have already installed it (check it by issuing rpm -qa|grep rpm-utils).

You can also retrieve the latest version at this URL :

I hope this helps !

Re: extract single file from rpm

Thanks Frederic! Seems that this package will do what I want and more. Also, the check-packages fileset is another very nice script rpm from this site.
