You can search for things with apt-cache search ..., although it is just a match on package names and descriptions, which sometimes is not enough. In that case using, e.g., apt-file search top might work -- it finds all packages that have a file with top in their name, but for this that is a bit zany (it includes setopt, .desktop, etc). To refine this ...

yum search also looks at installed packages, use "yum search -v" to get the extra information (like where it was found). My guess is that you have these installed, but not available, you can easily check this with "yum list extras" (or better "yum list distro-extras", but I don't think that's in el6).

Now this script does nothing else: It gets the latest news entries from the RSS feed, does ...
