RPM package contents


How I can determine what rpm package contains needed files?

Eg, I run the following query:

rpm -qpR /mnt/cdrom/Fedora/RPMS/xboard-4.2.6-7.i386.rpm

The query returns several needed files, but does not tell me what rpm package will install those needed files.

(I know obtaining this info. would be a easy from Gnome, but I'm learning command-line operations).

Thanks Much!

try to install it should tell you what rpms are missing why not just use yum or apt-get for rpms
