 Quick Question...

Does anyone have any idea how to use RPM to find out which
package a particular binary belongs to?

Thanks in advance,

Frank

Dave,

I had read the man page on RPM but I never added the path to the
binary as you've suggested.  Doing it your way works great.

Thanks again,

Frank
