rpm log files


Hi,

I have installed a few rpms without keeping a written lgo. I want to know if the rpm package manager keeps a log file for all rpm acitivty somewhere on the file system?

Thanks,

Sugz

Code:
rpm -qa
will give you a list of all installed packages.

Welcome to LQ.

'rpm -qa | sort' : alfabetic list

'rpm -qa | sort > installed-rpm.txt' : will print a textfile
in /home/<username>

'rpm -qa --last | less' : a list ordered by date and time.

'rpm -qa --last > last-rpm.txt' : a text file again.
.....

The rpm data base is not in a readable format, hence
the above commands.
