If you already installed the package list the contents with 'rpm -ql packagename', if you didn't then use 'rpm -qpl /path/to/packagefilename'. If the name of the executable is similar to the name of the package you could try 'which name'. If (s)locate cronjob already ran you could try 'locale name'. Also see 'apropos', 'whatis', 'whereis'.
