what are you talking about? which project? – glglgl Aug 28 '11 at 6:03

It is completely unclear to me what you mean, so I try to answer on a very general level.

If you have a .rpm and want to know what is contained in it, you can either do

rpm -q -lv <packet name>

for querying installed packets, or

rpm -qp -lv <rpm file name>

for querying .rpm files you want to inspect without installing.

If you want to find a file in Linux and you know the name (or part of it) of the file, you can do this:

find / -name "filename.extension"

And you can use wildcards:

find / -name "file*"
