strange rpm name

Posted on 2009-12-19
Last Modified: 2013-12-06
while going through my system, i found that some packages had different name,

for eg: when i run rpm -qa|grep httpd,

it reported as httpd-2.0.46-77.ent.bahama

I can also see httpd  rpms with name bahama appended in install folder. (by the way, please dont think it is compromised). Someone made some changes during initial installation ...

I check checksum of installed rpm and that of rpm files with following command.

rpm -qal --dump httpd
rpm -qap --httpd-2.0.46-77.ent.bahama.rpm

both of them match...

now my question is how to change httpd-2.0.46-77.ent.bahama.rpm so that bahama won't appear during rpm -qa httpd

I have tried renaming httpd-2.0.46-77.ent.bahama.rpm, but of no help...

    The name of the package along with it's version is encoded inside the rpm. You cannot change it . To change it, You would have to get source rpm and recompile(changing version extension first in the spec file)
