I'd like to issue a command to query information about a local rpm package. Something like this:

yum localinfo mylocalrpmpackage.rpm

yum info just queries information about remote packages.

Is there a way to do that?


There is a way to do this. Relevant options for rpm are: -qi. Where q means query and

-i, --info Display package information, including name, version, and description. This uses the --queryformat if one was specified.

For example rpm -qi <file>.
