listing the installed Packages


Hi,

Is there a command which I can use to list all the packages I have on my system with their sizes? "The sizes which they occupy on my HDD".

You can use "rpm -qa" to list all packages. To list the total size of the files in the package, I think you will need to use the --dump option to give you the block size of each file, and then use something like awk to give you the total.

Code:
rpm -q --dump kdeutils3 | awk '{size+=$2}END{print size}'

Thanks,

Here is the output:
Code:
[noha@hep-ex ~]$ rpm -q --dump kdeutils3 | awk '{size+=$5}END{print size}'
0
[noha@hep-ex ~]$
Did I do it right?

You probably don't have the kdeutils3 package installed.

This will list all of the packages and their sizes:
Code:
function packsize { rpm -q --dump $1 | awk '{size+=$2}END{print size}'; }
for package in $(rpm -qa); do 
  echo -ne "$package\t"
  packsize "$package"
done

It worked like a charm! Thank you

but how may I display the sizes in KB?


Also, was this a bash script (with an awk one)?
