How to I know what progs running and what's installed?


Is there a command that generates a list of all current running programs? and is there a command that will generate a list os all installed programs? rpm's and from source build/install?

at the command line you can type "top" without the quotes and see all the running processes. you can also use the command ps -x. Which distobution are you using? I believe mandrake and redhat both have an rpm program that shows all the installed rpms, as well as those that can be installed. Hope that helps ya a little bit =)

its been a while since ive used red hat, but i believe you can use kpackage to see the installed programs, and whats installable from the red hat cds. you should be able to run it by either typing kpackage at the command prompt, or under system in the k menu if your using kde. as for showing just the packages youve installed from source, im not sure if the kpackage shows that or not, and if now what will. sorry , but im sure someone here will be able to get ya in the right direction with that

ps -ef

and I think the command is:
rpm -qa

or if you want to know if a package is installed:
rpm -qa | grep package-name

'xrpm' will show you all rpms that are installed.
