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?

Open terminal and type:

whereis make

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.

Worked like a charm. Thanks.

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:

rpm -qi make -l

Interesting to see some Linux history in the list of ‘make’ authors:

    Richard Stallman
    Roland McGrath  
    Paul Smith
