Re: [opensuse] package naming question
Packages are named

Name-Version-Release.

Version and Release cannot contain "-"; so everything before second to
last dash is package name (which may include dashes itself).

rpm command accepts package Name or full Name-Version-Release (to
disambiguate between multiple installed instances).

Hello:

In rpm package names which part of the name is that can be used
as package name in rpm command? What is the rule?

Here are a few examples from my installed rpms list:

Mesa-libGL1-9.2.5-61.13.1.x86_64
kdemultimedia3-sound-3.5.10.1-11.1.4.x86_64
cpp48-4.8.1_20130909-3.2.1.x86_64
pulseaudio-module-zeroconf-4.0.git.270.g9490a-20.1.x86_64

For example I'd like to run rpm -e <package-name>.
How do I know what is the package name?

Thanks,

Istvan
