XFree86 Version fc4


Simple question but I can't seem to figure out how to find the version of XFree86 I have installed.

I've tried to find a command to run to find the version to no avail. Can I do this?

I've tried the RPM route, but can't find the rpm to query on. What package(s) is XFree86? Can I use a wildcard while searching for multiply packages?

I've tried yum to upgrade XFree86 but as with the rpm can't find anything to do. What am I updating or install with yum? Can I check current version of a package installed with yum? Can I use wildcards?

Thanks for the info

Fedora switched over to using Xorg at some point -- try "rpm -qa | grep -i xorg".
