Redhat Library locations

I'm about to go the hell damn mad.

I have a redhat server. new to it. am a windows guy.

i am trying to find out where the following scripts have been installed on the server.

ffmpeg
ffmpeg-php
lame mp3 encoder
flv2tool

now the server setup installed these. can you tell me their default directory installed locations for redhat?

If that fails try find...

find / -name <FILENAME> -print

e.g.

find / -name ffmpeg -print
find / -name ffmpeg-php -print
find / -name "lame mp3 encoder" -print
find / -name flv2tool -print

Ah, if you have the rpm names, try this...

rpm -qil <PACKAGENAME>

This will list the package info and files included
