Yum Provide Which Package Contains The Command

less than 1 minute read

See how to find the package you will need to install for the command you are looking for. Example, I was looking for the tshark command, but a simple yum search tshark was not returning any results. See how I found the linux command.

I ran this on a EC2 instances Amazon Linux v2, I wanted to run the command tshark but this was not available.

So, I searched for it with yum search tshark and package was not found.

A did quick research online and found in here a command that almost got forgotten!

yum whatprovides {COMMAND}

I decided to write this article to remind me of this command and it might be useful for you too.

yum whatprovides tshark

Try with other commands. Was this useful to you?

Happy learning!
