Question How to find the complete path of an installed package


Can anybody tell me how to find the complete path of an installed package in Red Hat 9?
The shell command/s would do ...

Actually I need to specify the path of the blas.o file in a makefile but am not sure where it resides?

Try this:
rpm -ql packagename

To find a file anywhere on your system:
locate filename
find / -name filename
