You may not have gotten the package name correct, or part of what looks like a version number is actually part of the name.
jschiwal@qosmio:~/downloads> rpm -qi libtiff
package libtiff is not installed
jschiwal@qosmio:~/downloads> rpm -qi libtiff3
Name : libtiff3 Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version : 3.8.2 Vendor: openSUSE
Release : 133.37.1 Build Date: Fri Aug 7 09:07:18 2009
The number 3 is a part of the package name and not a part of the version. The full package filename is "libtiff3-3.8.2-133.37.1".
If this is a plugin for a web browser, then there may not be a program per-se. But a library that the browser uses.
yes.... it is a plugin for my webrowser.....
I have even tried using the full package name
rpm -qi flash-plugin-10.0.32.18-release.i386.rpm
still the output is "flash-plugin-10.0.32.18-release.i386.rpm"...
I have tried to locate the path of the installed rpm frm the command u stated above.
rpm -qlp flash-plugin-10.0.32.18-release.i386.rpm
the output is: error: open of flash-plugin-10.0.32.18-release.i386.rpm failed: No such file or directory. Is there anythin else I can try..
Anyways..... thanks for ur reply....
