How can I check what libraries/etc I have, and what their versions are?

Is there a command or an app that will tell me exactly what libraries I have installed, and what versions?

readelf -V?

If you want to do it in one command, you might fix the line below and try something like it

find -path $LD_LIBRARY_PATH -type f |xargs readelf -V > somefile

less somefile
