How to list the package contents of a yum install? | MyThinkPond

Sometimes you need to see what’s installed as part of a package via yum. To see the package contents you can use a utility that’s available on the RHEL/CentOS.

[sourcecode language=“jscript”]

$repoquery –list packagename

[/sourcecode]

If you do not have this utility available, you can install it by using this command

[sourcecode]

$yum install yum-utils

[/sourcecode]

Here is a sample output from looking at the package contents of Apache httpd.

[sourcecode]

$repoquery –list httpd
