which version of rhpl do you have?
$ rpm -q rhpl
What package are you referring to?
rpm -q rhpl returns package not installed.
Additionally, when I search on rhpl in the list of packages at RedHat, it is
not identified as a known package.
I am not sure what you are looking for.
forgot, that rhpl was introduced in 8 and is not part of 7.x... sorry
