    This may be of some help from the cmd line guide in the Tut's section:

    To see if a package is installed: rpm -q [packagename]
    ex. rpm -q somepackage
    Rpm q webadmin
    ================================================

    To get info on an installed package: rpm -qi [packagename]
    ex. rpm -qi somepackage

    If this is not what your looking for let us know because its a good question.

    Hiya!

    Ok, here is a collection of URL's that should prove useful for learning apt-get for RH, and should also answer your question:

    Keeping your system upto date with apt-get:
    http://irtfweb.ifa.hawaii.edu/~ao/so...t_updates.html

    Graphical Apt-Get (not sure if you will have this in RH):
    http://packages.debian.org/stable/admin/gnome-apt.html

    Should answer your original question:
    http://oncode.info/include/texts.php...inux&text=dpkg
