Re: rpm -q showing error in el5

It means your system's RPM database of installed files does not know anything about /opt/EMPsysedge/bin/sysedge.

Perhaps the /opt/EMPsysedge directory tree was not installed using the RPM package tools, but instead copied from some other system?

Or perhaps your RPM database has been corrupted at some point, and you've had to restore an earlier version from backups? If the backup was from the time before the installation of /opt/EMPsysedge, the backup naturally contained no information about it.
