Re: [Linux-cluster] How to extract an rpm for use on another server?



rpm -qlf somefile will list all the files owned by a package too. You don't need to do it on every file.



[luis cerezo houts38 ~]$ rpm -qlf /etc/redhat-release
/etc/issue

If you don't have the rpm, you'll have to do a 'rpm -qf ...' on every 
file on your system to determine which one belong to VMware.  Try this 
perl script:

#!/usr/bin/perl

foreach $file (`find / -type f`) {
         $_ = `rpm -qf $file`;
         if ($_ =~ m/VMware/) {
                 print "$file ... $_\n";
         }
}
