Question RedHat installed packages database


Hello!

Where is the database containing information about which rpms that is installed on my system located? It would be quite useful if I could remove packages manually. Im running RH9.

The db is in /var/lib/rpm

To query it:
rpm -qa | grep -i PACKAGE

To remove packages:
rpm -e PACKAGE
