rpm package not installed?


Can i know how to check installed package? I am not sure the way i install
and check installed rpm package is correct or not. I do it as below....


[root@TYJ rpm packages]# rpm -ivh libgd-devel-1.3-4.i386.rpm
Preparing... (100########################################### [100%]
package libgd-devel-1.3-4 is already installed
[root@TYJ rpm packages]# rpm -e libgd-devel-1.3-4.i386.rpm
error: package libgd-devel-1.3-4.i386.rpm is not installed

Why it still shows not install after i installed the package??

Anyone knows please help....

Thank You

u can check whether that package is installed or not.
# rpm -qa | grep package-name

For example:
# rpm -qa | grep libgd

>[root@TYJ rpm packages]# rpm -e libgd-devel-1.3-4.i386.rpm

Maybe, "rpm -e" argument is wrong
When rpm package is removed, cpu-architecrure and extension are not necessary.
In this case, the following command is correct:

# rpm -e libgd-devel-1.3-4


Good luck!!
