Displaying currently installed AIX RPM files

You can verify if the prerequisite RPM files are already installed on the AIX system by using the AIX rpm command. For example you can check by entering this at the command line:

rpm -q freetype2 fontconfig

If the RPM is installed, AIX displays the version of the RPM file. If the RPM is not installed, AIX issues an error message, such as:

package freetype2 is not installed
