I'd like to know how to do this via the web, something similar to Debian's official package search page.


Go to access.redhat.com/downloads/content/package-browser, log in with your Red Hat Account, and search the packages.

If you don't have an account, you can register for free at developers.redhat.com. You need a paid subscription to access the package list mentioned above.

    So, there is no way to do this without having that ID? – Tshepang Feb 3 '11 at 22:49
  • Well if you have a legal copy of RHEL you should have that ID :-/. But thats the most official site youre going to get. You can browse the centos repos, but thats as close as you can get – Patrick Feb 3 '11 at 23:16

    Stupid. My client has the license. It would be nice if I could develop software for him without bothering him for these details, after all these package version numbers are hardly top secret? – Jürgen Strobel Feb 7 '12 at 19:55

    @Patrick: No. I very definitely can develop software on OSX or any other Linux (Unix), for example Debian, and I prefer the luxury of my own and better tools. – Jürgen Strobel Feb 8 '12 at 11:46

    @Patrick - We are kind of in the same spot... Tshepbang and Jürgen. We want to send Red Hat a notice of an updated software package, but we can't find an email address for the maintainers at Red Hat. – user56041 Nov 21 '15 at 1:17

What do you need to find out about packages?

  • if you have a RHEL box:
    • use RHN web site
    • use yum or repoquery
  • if not:
  • Regarding the pbone search, are the results I get for official RHEL packages, or simply packages built for RHEL? – Tshepang Feb 3 '11 at 23:02
  • View the page and see for yourself. There is no option for RHEL5 or RHEL6, only CentOS. – Mikel Feb 3 '11 at 23:05

    Actually, there is, for RHEL 5 and lower. – Tshepang Feb 3 '11 at 23:24
  • Pardon me! There is! :-) – Mikel Feb 3 '11 at 23:33
