Over and over again, I see the word CAPABILITIES, usually underlined, used in the rpm man page. I want to know exactly what is meant by that. For example, the rpm's command line option --requires just says
Well, capabilities is a broad term that can mean anything a package needs or provides.
Example, a downloaded package : $ rpm -qRp <package>.rpm
The reply can be: /bin/sh, rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= <?>,
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= <?>, libc.so.6, etc. etc.
I.e. everything that's required : commands, files, packages.
Example commands, an installed package : rpm -q -R <package-name>
Or : $ rpm -qR <package-name>
And : $ rpm -ql <package-name>
Thanks for the information. So none of the output of is package names? For example rpm -qR rpm will have "grep" in it's list of package. Is it referring to the grep package or the file grep itself?
