Full Version: Installing Rpm's

Well I usually download rpm's from the web [to have the latest], and everything is ok that way.
I install with rpm -ivh or -Uvh, but the only thing that bothers me is,...

when you download some rpm package with a name like quad-damage-rpm-32.42-32.i386.ultra.rpm and you install it,
how do you know what is the actual file you need to type to run that program?[if there is no comment after you've installed the rpm]

is there a way [since I'm still using KDE as well, and console to] to make an icon or something to the installed rpm's? or to find them somehow.


Sincerely

Hi,

You can run rpm -q -l package and it will give you a list of files installed by that package. The executable is normally located in one of the bin directories.
