listing installed packages using rpm


How would one view installed packages on a single system using the rpm command?

Never mind disregard this post. I had a brain hickup and forgot to search your database I found the anwser for anybody in cyborg-land

rpm -qa|more

Sorry moderators, I know that I am going to catch cyber-hell for this one!

Well, 'rpm -qa' is just a start listing things. RPM makes things easier. Say you want to list installed RPM's:

- by installtime:
Code:
rpm -qa --qf="%{INSTALLTIME:date} %{NAME}\n"
- by group:
Code:
cat /usr/share/doc/rpm-*/GROUPS\
|while read grp; do echo "# Group: ${grp}"; 
rpm -q -g "${grp}"; echo; done
- top-10 packages by size:
Code:
rpm -qa --qf="%{SIZE} %{NAME}\n"|sort -grk1|head -10
