Equery is a tool that displays information about the installed packages on the system. equery is based on a system of modules, , running it with out arguments displays a list of options
Running equery with the b flag is useful to determine which package a file comes from.
# equery b /usr/lib/libpam.so * Searching for /usr/lib/libpam.so ... sys-libs/pam-1.1.8-r2 (/usr/lib64/libpam.so)
Running equery with the f flag is useful to show all installed files from a package.
# equery f domination * Searching for domination ... * Contents of games-board/domination-184.108.40.206: /usr /usr/games /usr/games/bin /usr/games/bin/domination ...
