Hi, ALL,
I barely remember that in order to answer: "What package the program belongs?" I need to issue:

equery belongs

So, I tried:

equery belongs fglrx

but received

equery: command not found

Help!

Thank you.

equery is in app-portage/gentoolkit
But this checks only stuff already installed.
You could do emerge --search if that's what you're looking for?

Hi,
Thank you for the reply.
What I'm looking for is "fglrx": program to check 3D rendering of OpenGL.

"equery belongs" only reports what package an existing file on your system belongs to. For instance:
Code:
~ # equery belongs /usr/bin/ls
 * Searching for /usr/bin/ls ...
sys-apps/coreutils-8.14 (/bin/ls)
Finding something that isn't installed is harder. Sometimes it takes a lot of looking or just someone that knows. I think I know what you're looking for and that's glxgears. It's part of x11-apps/mesa-progs. :wink:

Hi, John,
According to this page topic 4.4, it is called "glxinfo" ;-)
Is it the one?

Thank you.

Code:
~ # equery belongs `which glxinfo`
 * Searching for /usr/bin/glxinfo ...
x11-apps/mesa-progs-8.0.1 (/usr/bin/glxinfo)
Why, yes. :wink:

- John

Thank you, John.
3D works on my system without any tweaking. ;-)
