How to list the files installed by a yum package

Occasionally I need to see exactly what files are part of an installed package. On a fedora system, one easy way to do this is to use repoquery, which is part of yum-utils.

If you don’t have repoquery you’ll need to install it first:

% yum install yum-utils

Then you can run it like so:

% repoquery --list *package*

repoquery writes the list of files for the specified package to standard output. For example, to see the files installed by the nmh package, use:

% repoquery --list nmh
/etc/nmh
/etc/nmh/MailAliases
/etc/nmh/components
/etc/nmh/digestcomps
/etc/nmh/distcomps
...
