Searching Files on the RPM
« on: April 12, 2022, 06:30:54 pm »
Hi

I usually get into the issue that someone tell me install xxxxx.exe or yyyy.dll from the rpm repository and I have no idea what is the name of the package.

I was suggested to use "yum whatprovides", for example "yum whatprovides */libcn0.dll"
The command used to work, but now it does not procedure any results.

Any ideas on how to search for files or what is going on?

Regards

Yes: use

Code: [Select]
yum provides libcn0.dll
instead of yum whatprovides.

Use

Code: [Select]
yum | more
to see a list of all yum commands.
