I am trying to install 7zip to CentOS

yum install p7zip

installed it. And now running this returns

Package p7zip-9.20.1-2.el5.x86_64 already installed and latest version


[root@root public_html]# which p7zip
/usr/bin/which: no p7zip in (/usr/kerberos/sbin:/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/root/bin)

So, why p7zip is installed but I cannot use it?

Just looked at the package distribution, the binary file is 7za. – Breakthrough Nov 14 '11 at 12:52

More generally, you can find what command the package provides by rpm command:

rpm -qlpackage-name| grep bin
