rpmsoname - Man Page

list files that provide sonames in RPM package(s)


rpmsoname [-h] [options] [FILE...] [DIR...]


rpmsoname produces two-column output (typically one line per each soname). Column one contains file path; column two contains corresponding soname. When processing a directory, an additional column is prepended to the output, which is typically RPM file basename.

Note that the name rpmsoname is probably a misnomer: the script does not deal with ELF DT_SONAME entries.  What it does is try to map soname-like entries from RPM PROVIDES list to regular files within the very same RPM package (using BASENAMES, FILENAMES, and FILELINKTOS lists from RPM header).


Options and arguments manage a set of RPM packages to be processed; they are those of rpmargs(1).
