Tru64 - how can you determine the package where a file or binary belongs to?.

Dear linux-unix users,

I hope that one of you will be able to help me.
How can I determine to which package a file or binary belongs to.

With solaris/linux package managers you can easely determine this but i cant find the way how to do this on tru64.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.
Many thanks to anyone who takes the effort to read this thread.

do you have a CDE desktop or are you working from the command line?

you should be able to get at installed packages in sysman and working backwards through likely packages' file list find it. I dont think that there is another tool for this on Tru64 4.1x or 5.1x

The equivalant command line command is the software subset management utility i.e. setld(8).

To display the contents of a subset (aka package): setld -l <subset>

There is no utility in Tru64 UNIX to determine which subset a file belongs to. However, you can figure it out by looking in the subset inventory files which are located at /usr/.smdb./*.inv
