How do I find what package a particular file belongs?
Thanks to Bruce Rossiter <AROSSITE@us.oracle.com> and
Deepak_D_Wilson@notes.seagate.com for expeident replies.
I only wish the particular binaries I was interested in weren't so
integrated in with many other binaries in the same package..
Keywords: pkginfo pkgchk pkgrm sadm
Do a grep for the binary on the file /var/sadm/install/contents it will
give you the package it belongs, checksum size permissions and various
other useful info.
$ grep in.ftpd /var/sadm/install/contents
/usr/sbin/in.ftpd f none 0555 bin bin 45588 17517 814619440 *SUNWcsu
/usr/share/man/man1m/in.ftpd.1m f none 0444 bin bin 12703 20265 812338893

Subject: packages and finding information
Hi all. I'm interested in removing a few packages, but can't figure out
which package the specific binary belongs to.
How can I use pkginfo, or another program, to find which package a
particular binary belongs to? Specifically sendmail and in.ftpd?
Also, I would think this question would have been asked before, but I was
unable to find it searching the archives.. Obviously searching on
'pkginfo' is not a good choice...
