how do I view all the installed software on my RHEL 5 machine

Hello Everybody,

I am a new linux user and new joiner of this forum. Request you to help me view all the software installed on my RHEL 5 machine.

Can we find any utility like Add/Remove Programs in Windows?

In addition to using rpm to display all packages installed on a system.
I also like using these two programs:


Of course they are used for more than only displaying what software is installed on a system.

On the top-left corner you will find the applications menu. This can be thought of something similar to 'Start' menu in Windows.

At the bottom of 'Applications' menu, you should see 'Add/Remove Software'.

The above only works if you have the GUI installed. Otherwise, see this page
