You can also use yum to list installed packages, the list
is sorted.

yum list installed > ~/installedRPMs.txt

Yum has many nice features:
man yum

yum can tell you the packages that have updates:
yum list updates

yum can tell you all the available packages, including ones
that you do not have installed. The list will indicate which
packages are installed and if not installed which repro they
are in:
yum list all

yum can give you info on all the packages, installed and/or
yum info all
yum info available

planet and our everyday decisions[3] can help create
a better world for all. In keeping with this fact
and our vision, the World Centric Fair Trade/Eco
