I am looking for a way to list the installed packages on my system. I know that you can list rpms using rpm -qa. I am looking to list packages the I compiles from binaries. Is this possible. Thanks.

Unless you use some sort of system that records what source packages you install, I really don't think there is a way.

The closest you can do, if you compile most of your software without the --prefix= configure parameters, then the binaries should reside in your /usr/local/bin , this is not gaurenteed though.

You can probably check /usr/local/share , most source packages make a directory there during 'make install'.

Other then that, there is no real definitive list.

True..there is no known program that can track the packages that has been installed from source.
