RPM - commands


Can someone tell me what the commands are, in RPM, to do the following three things:
(1) display only the configuration files associated with a package;
(2) display a list of files marked as documentation; and
(3) the option to tell a user what package a particular file belongs to.

Thank you!

man rpm

Isn't there something that's supposed to come after that, like "-l", "-f", or "-r"? I guess I thought the answer wouldn't be that simple. Thanks!

smokarran, "man rpm" will display the manual pages for the RPM command, just navigate through them and you'll work it out soon enough.

I myself don't use rpm, so sorry I can't be more simpler

(1) display only the configuration files associated with a package;

not sure how to display only config files but

rpm -ql packageName

will display all files associated with the package


(2) display a list of files marked as documentation; and

rpm -ql packageName | grep -i doc

or look for files in the doc or man directories when doing rpm -ql packageName

(3) the option to tell a user what package a particular file belongs to.

rpm -qf theFileName
