tracking system changes after package installation
My question is just for learning purpose only.
I want to know and understand that when a package is installed in the system (RHEL 6), what happens in the background ?
Means, installing the package results in creation of some file in the system at some certain locations (depending on the package) and the edition/changes in some system (configuration) files.
I want to know that how to find out the changes which have been done in the system after the package installation i.e. which file have been created and/or edited and if possible in what sequence ?
example package name foobar
Viewing packages from installed rpm (2 ways to do the same thing)
Installing the source rpm will create the rpmbuild directory with sub-folder with SPEC, RPM, SOURCE, etc.
That will give you more information about how things are installed with regards to order
Hope that helps
