As a matter of interest, suppose you didn't have this package installed.
Is there any way of asking which rpm in the world contains a given library file (or "object")?
I know google often gives a hint,
but is there any better way?




yum provides <library>

This will tell you which package provides the required dependency. However, the version of yum in FC4 can do better than this. If you use "yum localinstall some.rpm" then it will figure out the required dependencies and install them for you along with the package some.rpm:


# yum localinstall java-1.5.0-sun-jdbc-1.5.0.03-1jpp.i586.rpm
