For example I want to investigate what version of
g++ is available in current Ubuntu:
I directly see that the default version is 4.4.4, also available is 4.5.1. In Natty it is 4.5.1:
Via http://packages.ubuntu.com/natty/g++ you can browse coveniently through the dependencies and directly see which architectures are supported.
You can also search the contents of the packages.
For Fedora I've found
Searching for g++ returns nothing:
Ok, perhaps it is split differently:
This yields results and it seems that there is only one big
gcc package which includes
But this is not true. Using
yum search on a Fedora 14 system yields:
(which includes g++)
Without access to an actual Fedora system, do I really have to somehow expect this and browse down into the package git tree to get the same information? I mean like this:
(and then search for '%package' ?)
The https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/acls/name/gcc shows me that a gcc package is available in Fedora 13 and 14 but it does not show:
- the dependencies
- the actual versions
- the architectures
Ok, I can see the versions via going to https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/gcc
Thus my question: What is the Fedora equivalent to the Debian/Ubuntu package search pages?
What do you use to look similar information up?
And what about getting this kind of information for other rpm based distros like Cent OS or RHEL?
