rpm install history


Hello All:

I'd like to find out what rpms I've installed on this box.
What's the command for that, something like

rpm -qa | grep rpm?

Thanks.

Oh. I'm using rh 7.3 w/ kernel 2.4.18-3

Just rpm -qa will show you a list of RPMs installed. Once a week, Red Hat systems (or at least some versions) make a log of all the RPMs installed in /var/log/rpmpkgs, so that file may have a list and you can check differences between older and newer logs.

Good to know!!
I'm getting really tired of Ximian so I'm doing a little investigating.

Thanks.

Do you know of anything similar for SuSE? I'm trying to track down something that broke Firefox and Thunderbird but haven't found anything like an install log yet.
