Simple question: What modules do Fedora 4 come with?

Hi all,

This is a question I always want to ask.

Whenever I install a new software into Fedora (for example zipinfo or jpegtran), I did all the work (download, gunzip, make...) only to find that it already comes with Fedora 4.

Is there a list of modules that come with Fedora so that I could check against before I waste my time doing the redundant install.

Thanks in advance.

Just to avoid confusion: The term “module” refers normally to a device driver or an individual source file within a program or library. “zipinfo” and “jpeg4tran” are examples of packages, not of modules.

Each package is listed as an RPM file on the installation media, so you can get a complete list by looking at something like

You might also want to look at, which will allow you to search for pre-packaged versions of your programs that you can install using rpm --install packagename.rpm (although you might also want to look at something like apt-get which will handle dependencies for you as well).
