Posted by Mont Rothstein on 18 October 2007 03:10 PM

To find and install a package that has a particular file:



On the command line as root, enter the following:



up2date --solvedeps="filename"



Ex: up2date --solvedeps=""



To only see what package(s) has the file but not install it use:



up2date --whatprovides="filename"
