Description Jason Pepas 2006-07-06 10:21:06 EDT
Running 'rpm -qa' lists many packages twice.

On a fresh, minimal install of FC5, compare the following output:

# rpm -qa | wc -l
# rpm -qa | sort | uniq | wc -l
Comment 1 Paul Nasrat 2006-07-06 10:45:11 EDT
Multilib packages.

rpm --qf '%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}.%{ARCH}\n' -qa | sort | uniq | wc -l
