How can I tell what software I have installed?


I'm trying to build a server using the SME distro and MySQL. Following the tutorials for MySQL, I need to have certain software installed. How do I know what programs I have installed?

According to google SME is a spawn of Centos/RedHat, so ...

Code:
rpm -qa
should tell you what's installed.



Cheers,

Well, it showed me the last 10-15 results....

So I discovered the | less command. Making progress...

Happen to know how to sort the list alphabetically?

Tried looking at the man pages, but didn't see anything about organizing the list.

man sort http://linux.die.net/man/ ?
Also, this may be useful http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-2531

A crude cmd would be something like

rpm -qa |grep -i mysql| sort ....
