hi,

root@lnxc-501.srv.mediaways.net:~ # rpm -qa | grep net-tools
net-tools-1.60-3

root@lnxc-501.srv.mediaways.net:~ # rpm -q --redhatprovides ifconfig
no package provides ifconfig

root@lnxc-501.srv.mediaways.net:~ # rpm -ql net-tools
/bin/dnsdomainname
/bin/domainname
/bin/hostname
/bin/netstat
/bin/nisdomainname
/bin/ypdomainname
/sbin/arp
/sbin/ether-wake
/sbin/ifconfig
/sbin/ipmaddr
/sbin/iptunnel
/sbin/mii-tool
/sbin/nameif
/sbin/plipconfig
/sbin/route

Comment 1 Tim Powers 2003-01-24 15:11:27 UTC
To see what provides a file you need to provide the path, ie.:  rpm -q --redhatprovides /sbin/ifconfigThe reason you are seeing some work and some not with the way you are doing it is because some files have the same name as the package name, so this:  rpm -q --redhatprovides iptrafIs going to return "iptraf" since the package provides and requires its own package name. Make sense?Tim
