List the packages:
Code:
rpm -qa | less
(use the arrows, pg up/down, 'q' to quit)

What packages does package P require?
Code:
rpm -q --requires P
What packages do require package P?
Code:
rpm -q --what-requires P
Yves.
(or is it 'require' without the 's'... I don't remember)

Using the "-i" flag with grep seems to be best if you don't know the exact package name e.g.
Code:
$rpm -qa | grep -i nameOfPackage

APT is not well supported in FC4 and from FC5 onwards APT support maybe totally discontinued.

Which is logical.
On Mandriva, I would suggest urpm (text) or rpmdrake (GUI) if you wanted more powerfull tools. I suppose "yum" is the equivalent on Fedora.
