Like I said in one of my posts earlier, that is not possible, since I dont have any executable file in my RPM!
If its installed on your system:
rpm -ql store
To query the actual package file:
rpm -qlp
Any properly packaged RPM should list ALL the files that it installs - not just the executable ones.

I have a doubt here. I have created an RPM which actually does no more than copy certain files in a certain directory structure to a particular location
Are you saying you made the RPM file yourself - ie. you wrote the spec file? If so you need to include a %files section in the specfile. In there you specify all the files (not just the executable files) that your rpm installs.

Mandriva has a good RPM howto if you're unfamiliar with making them:

Thanks for the reply. I have infact been successfully able to create an RPM using the Mandrake How To.
