 Where have my rpm's gone.
What is the correct procedure or command for finding out where a
specific rpm is installed.

I've found that it is not easy to discover the exact location/files
that an rpm has installed on my system without doing a search on the
system.  I thought the rpm -qi command would give me a detailed
info(including location) but the info seems to be somewhat generic and
not detailed.

Thanks. That's embarrasing.   I am not sure how many times I've looked
at the man page and actually missed it.

rpm -q -a # will list all the current rpm installs
