rpm -q --qf  "%{n}-%{v}-%{r}.%{arch}\n"  <package name>
<package name>.x86_64

or
echo  '%_query_all_fmt %%{name}-%%{version}-%%{release}.%%{arch}'  >> ~/.rpmmacros
then do
rpm -q <package_name>

For example:
$ rpm -q --qf "%{n}-%{v}-%{r}.%{arch}\n" vim-common
vim-common-7.0.109-3.el5.3.x86_64

Wesly,

Curious, why all extra formatting stuff?  I have never seen it done that way, just wondering what the reason is behind it.

If you know for example the name of the init script, you can just do
rpm -qf filename

Open in new window

[root@broken ~]# rpm -qf /etc/init.d/httpd
httpd-2.2.15-5.el6.centos.x86_64

Open in new window

You have the setting in ~/.rpmmacros to show %%{arch} as I mentioned in the first post.
Otherwise, you won't see .x86_64

which Linux distribution do you have?
I tested on my CentOS 5.x.
Without setting in rpmmacros, it won't show %%{arch} by default.
--------
# cat ~/.rpmmacros
%_query_all_fmt %%{name}-%%{version}-%%{release}.%%{arch}

# mv /root/.rpmmacros   /root/.rpmmacros_old

#  rpm -qf /etc/init.d/httpd
httpd-2.2.3-53.el5.centos.1

# mv /root/.rpmmacros_old   /root/.rpmmacros

#  rpm -qf /etc/init.d/httpd
httpd-2.2.3-53.el5.centos.1.i386

On CentOS 5.x
# grep query_all_fmt  /usr/lib/rpm/macros
%_query_all_fmt         %%{name}-%%{version}-%%{release}
