    List installed packages with YUM

    This post looks at how to list the installed packages with YUM from the command line for YUM based Linux distributions, such as CentOS and Fedora.

    It’s very simple:

    yum list installed

    This will result in a list of all installed packages in case-sensitive alphabetical order, like in the following example:

    Loading "fastestmirror" plugin
    Loading "installonlyn" plugin
    Installed Packages
    Deployment_Guide-en-US.noarch            5.1.0-11.el5.centos.1  installed
    GConf2.i386                              2.14.0-9.el5           installed
    GConf2.x86_64                            2.14.0-9.el5           installed
    ImageMagick.i386                       installed
    ImageMagick.x86_64                     installed
    MAKEDEV.x86_64                           3.23-1.2               installed
    NetworkManager.x86_64                    1:0.6.4-6.el5          installed
    ORBit2.i386                              2.14.3-4.el5           installed
    ORBit2.x86_64                            2.14.3-4.el5           installed
    SysVinit.x86_64                          2.86-14                installed
    acl.x86_64                               2.2.39-2.1.el5         installed
    acpid.x86_64                             1.0.4-5                installed
    zip.x86_64                               2.31-1.2.2             installed
    zlib.x86_64                              1.2.3-3                installed
    zlib.i386                                1.2.3-3                installed
    zlib-devel.i386                          1.2.3-3                installed
    zlib-devel.x86_64                        1.2.3-3                installed

    The list is going to be pretty long, so you might want to pipe it through “more” or “less” so you can scroll through it a page at a time:

    yum list installed | more
    yum list installed | less

    or direct it out to a file for viewing in a text editor:

    yum list installed > /tmp/yum-list.txt

    If you need to see all packages, installed and available, you can use:

    yum list all

    Or maybe just available packages:

    yum list available
