list of programs I have


I have redhat and I'v installed (and tried to install) a lot of programs.
My problem is now; how can I easy see which programs I have? And how can I easy delete or upgrade them?
Now I always use the command line, but it's not very practical imo...

Well you can see at least which RPMS are installed if you type in (as root):

rpm -qa

This gives you a list of all RPMs installed.

One note tho...this doesn't include any source programs you might have installed yourself.

I don't believe there are any tools to determine anything added from source; not that I've found.

The only alternative is a notebook where you write down the software name and version of anything you compile and install yourself. I didn't like the idea at first (thought it was tedious), but I'm a convert now...

I thought that was a joke. Wow what the hell kind of command is that. Very cool Master Kenobi.
