software list

I used to work on HP-UX and there was a command that listed software installed called "swinstall" . Redhat doesn't seem to have that command. Does anybody know a command in Redhat that lists all the software installed on a particular box? Thanks.

Re: software list

Hi,

RedHat Linux uses the 'rpm' command. Try this:

rpm -qa

to list all the installed RPMs on a box. Take a look at the man page for rpm. It is powerful, and you'll need to know it to administer a RedHat system.

Re: software list

The rpm command works just like swinstall/swlist/swremove

Accept its one command and all the options are totally different.

rpm -i packagename installs

rpm -q lets you do swlist queries

Stuff like that.

Hello!

The swXXXX was in hp it's software ...
In RH you have rpm (RH package manager)
You use rpm -q (quiery)
And you have -a for all packages
also you can specify the package name.
