Thread: How do I find out where Yast installed things?

  1. #1

    Default How do I find out where Yast installed things?

    I've just installed Make (or think I have) from one of the software repositories. Yast didn't tell me where it put it. How do I find this out?

    If you go into YAST -> software management search for Make then click the File List tab. This will show you all the files installed with the Package.

    If you are a real glutton for extra information, you could do an information query of the rpm database for the 'make' package, adding the 'l' (lower case L) list option. ie:
    Code:
    rpm -qi make -l
    Interesting to see some Linux history in the list of 'make' authors:
    Code:
    Authors:

        Roland McGrath  
        Paul Smith
