Problem with finding files
I am very very very new to linux so this problem probably sounds outrageously stupid. What happened was I was trying to install an rpm. Libvdread, I am using redhat 9, I double clicked on the rpm and it automatically installed (I didnt know this was even possible, thought would have to use rpm -i or something). So, it says that its installed but Inot where and I dont know how to find the file? Am trying to use this library but ./configure cannot find it even though its supposedly installed somewhere. I would try and show the path but don't know where it is, and not sure how to do that exactly either. Tried the find file thing from the taskbar but that won't find it , also I'm not entirely sure what the name would be anyway. the rpm is libvdread with some numbers, would the name be exactly the same?
My apologies for the probably really obvious question... I feel like an idiot.
