How can I tell the version of a package after doing a yum search?
yum search rabbitmq
rabbitmq-server.noarch : The RabbitMQ server
I need to know the version of this server.
You can find the version number of a package in your repositories with the
yum info command.
# yum info rabbitmq-server Available Packages Name : rabbitmq-server Arch : noarch Version : 2.6.1 Release : 1.fc16 Size : 1.1 M Repo : updates Committer : Peter Lemenkov <firstname.lastname@example.org> Committime : Tue Nov 8 13:00:00 2011 Buildtime : Tue Nov 8 10:31:03 2011 Summary : The RabbitMQ server URL : http://www.rabbitmq.com/ License : MPLv1.1 Description : RabbitMQ is an implementation of AMQP, the emerging standard for high : performance enterprise messaging. The RabbitMQ server is a robust and : scalable implementation of an AMQP broker.
To find the version numbers of installed packages, you can use
rpm with the
# rpm -q kernel kernel-3.3.1-5.fc16.x86_64 kernel-3.3.2-1.fc16.x86_64 kernel-3.3.2-6.fc16.x86_64
You can get more info with the following command:
yum info rabbitmq
yum list rabbitmq
if you prefer condensed output.
yum info only shows information for one specific "instance" of a package. I wanted to know not what version I had installed but which were available on the repos. So this did it for me:
yum -v list package_name --show-duplicates
