Question files / directories are created when we install a RPM


Hi all,

Is there a way to find out which files / directories are created (or modified) when we install a RPM.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
VIKAS

The rpm query options allow you to run a query on an uninstalled rpm:
Code:
rpm -qlp <rpm file>
The 'q' signifies you want to query
The 'l' will list all files included in the rpm
the 'p' will let you query an uninstalled rpm file
