I have installed a number of RPM packages on AIX 5.3 and 6.1 systems. The problem is that I can't find them - that is, they're not showing up in the report generated by the lslpp report. I'm contemplating installing more of these, but I'd like to know that I can remove them. Are there additional arguments for viewing RPM packages with the lslpp command, or is there another set of commands altogether for manipulating RPM packages on AIX systems?

Did you try

rpm -qa | grep -I <packagename>

then

rpm -e <package name>
