go? How can you find them?

Thanks,

To discover where an app has gone, in a terminal type "which (app)"

Example:


/usr/local/bin/gpg

Your results may vary.

After you install a package you can run
updatedb       to rebuild the file location database. To find files, try
locate file_name_here   Example:

locate -i index.htm | grep -i doc

updatedb must be done as root.

Assuming you installed rpm packages, in addition to locate or which, you can
also use the rpm command:

shell> rpm -qa | grep mail

will list all the installed packages whose name contains mail. Once you got
the list, you can for instance:

shell> rpm -qil fetchmail-6.2.0-3

This will tell you the things you want to know about that particular
packages.

Or try "rpm -q --list <package name>"
