Unhappy finding installed rpm


Greetings,
I just installed BitDefender-Console-Antivirus-7.1-3.linux-gcc3x.i386.rpm and now I can't locate the program.

try
Code:
rpm -q BitDefender-Console-Antivirus
it will show the complete name of the package and you can do whatever you want to do with the package.
Alternatively, if that does not work, try
Code:
rpm -qa | grep -i bitdefender
the 2nd one is a sloppy way of finding things (take some time to search the complete database) .... but it works !

Both commands gave me the same result . . .BitDefender-Console-Antivirus-7.1-3

Am I missing something? I still don't know where the program is.

Use the command acid_kewpie gave...
Code:
rpm -ql BitDefender-Console-Antivirus
The q is for query and the lowercase L will list all the files that were installed by this package. I'm not familiar with BitDefender, but the program you need to run is most likely in a bin type directory. You might also take a look at any man files that were installed to locate documentation.
