rpm -qa | less
shoves them all into less. You can move up and down with page keys, or arrows, and q quits.
This is different, but if you want to know what all the rpms do, take your file browser, in KDe it's Konqueror, into the CD, and type
rpm -qpi * | less
or for permanent file,
rpm -qpi * > /path/filename.txt
and it will produce a permanent text file of rpm info or descriptions that you can peruse with a word processor.
rpm -qpl * > /path/filename.txt
will produce a very large text file of every file in every rpm on that CD.
As I typed, I realized I have failed miserably in my snooping in that I have not tried
rpm -qpil * > /path/filename.txt to try to get them both. I do not think it will work with two options, but I should try it when I get time.
