Fedora 14 xfce

I have installed a package using yum install package-name.

However, I can't seen to find out where it has been installed to.

Is there any command that will tell me what directory the files have been installed to?

You can just use the rpm tool for this.

rpm -ql package-name

Will list all files installed by that package (that's que-ell).

You could open a terminal session and use whereis:

[linker3000@aa1 ~]$ whereis vi
vi: /bin/vi /usr/share/man/man1/vi.1.gz /usr/share/man/man1p/vi.1p.gz
