dealing with my redhat 8.0 packages!


Hi there!

Well, I have this problem with my package manager on RedHat version 8.0.
I can't find my packages and I can't deal with them properly. I have been trying to uninstall vmware for a while and I just couldn't. It is not as easy as it was with redhat 7.2 where I could see ALL the packages either as a flat view or as a tree. Can anyone solve me this problem please.
I want to be able to SEE ALL MY PACKAGES, thats all - as I could with version 7.2.

A nice easy way to view all your RPMs is to issue this command:
rpm -qa

This will print them all....you can grep this for a certain package or pipe it thru more to make it easier to thumb thru:

rpm -qa | grep vmware
rpm -qa | more

Good luck!

you might want to check out the man page for rpm. The new "Package Manager" included in the RedHat 8 distribution is limited and not reliable if you have run up2date (it will not detect some of the updated packages and will delete them--causing havoc). Kpackage from 7.3 was better. However, if you spend some time researching the rpm program, you will not need either. Type at a shell prompt:

man rpm

good luck (also look for rpm help on google and this forum)
