rpm -qi
i don't think so.  for instance, i know mercurial is in the FC
"extras" repo, but there's nothing in

 $ rpm -qi mercurial

that tells me that.


You may want to try yum search package

Lockwood's Long Shot: The chances of getting eaten up by a lion on Main
Street aren't one in a million, but once would be enough.

Note, that al this is not telling you where the package came from, but only where you can FIND it (too).
I use additional repos like ATrpms and Freshrpms.
ATrpms puts "at" in its package name .... Freshrpms does not do that

$ yum --enablerepo=freshrpms list zvbi
Setting up repositories
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Installed Packages
zvbi.i386                                0.2.22-5.fc4.at        installed
Available Packages
zvbi.i386                                0.2.15-1.2.fc4         freshrpms

If the package from Freshrpms was installed, I only can see it is installed.
The available upgrade would be from ATrpms .... that is NOT where it came from !!

If anyone knows a "trick" so I can really see where it CAME from .. that would be nice ....
