How to find the size of RPM in CentOS?


I can display the RPM installed on CentOS 5.4 though:
Code:
#rpm -qa| more
How can I know the size of those RPMs?

You can try the query-format option to retrieve the total size of the installed packages, e.g.
Code:
$ rpm -q --qf '%11{SIZE} %{NAME}\n' coreutils
    3999445 coreutils
You may want to know the size of all the installed packages and sort them. Here we go:
Code:
$ rpm -qa --qf '%11{SIZE} %{NAME}\n' | sort -k1n
Sizes are given in bytes.
