Hi,

My RH partition corrupted itself to death last night and I took the opportunity to try Gentoo, and what a happy mistake!

Just a couple of queries though. I'm an RH user for over 2 years, and I'm pretty used to commandline rpm ... I can't figure out the emerge equivalents of a couple of commands:

1. File --> package reverse-lookup. In rpm, you could rpm -qf /bin/ls and it would tell you which package owned /bin/ls ... is there an emerge equiv?

2. Package --> file list. In rpm, you could rpm -ql galeon and it would tell you every file that belongs to the galeon package .. again, is there an emerge equiv?

3. Info: I know I can do a `emerge search galeon` and it will give me the galeon info, but it will also give info for everything else containing the substring 'galeon' and it also takes ages because it searches the entire portage tree. Is there a specific package query command in emerge?

Thanks, and I look forward to a long future in the gentoo community :)

Try:

Code:
emerge epm


And I think you'll find it very familiar. :)

Hmm...

From the gentoolkit ebuild:
Code:
src_install () {
   (...)
   dosbin ${FILESDIR}/scripts/epm
   (...)
}


And from the epm ebuild:
Code:
src_install () {
   dobin epm

}

OK -- looks like they're included in both locations, then, 'cause epm is definitely a standalone package. That's weird.
