4.2.4. Listing the configuration files for a package

The –c option tells the rpm –q command to list the configuration files for a package. You can also use the longer option, --configfiles, in place of –c. The basic syntax is:
rpm –qc package_name
For example:
# rpm -qc bash
This command lists the configuration files for the bash package.
Some packages don’t have configuration files, as shown following:
# rpm -qc python
In this case, the rpm command provides no output. Other packages have a lot of configuration files, such as the sendmail mail transfer agent, as shown following:
# rpm -qc sendmail
As with the –l option, the –v option provides more information on each file, as shown following:
#rpm -qcv bash
