[erlang-questions] What is the best way to test rpm installed Erlang? (smoke test)

Hi Tuncer,

Thanks for your quick response.

There's a only rpm erlang installed.

For the source code erlang (also 17.5),I didn't run "make install" after
built. Only set ERL_TOP to build and run test cases.

I unset ERL_TOP when I ran test cases on rpm erlang. I was
using /usr/bin/erl which in $PATH.

> rpm -qf /usr/bin/erl

I'm not sure if it' ok that the test cases were built from source code
(make release_tests) not from rpm. Both are 17.5 though.

1. figure out which erlang (if there's more than one installed) you're
result: path_to_erlang_binary

2. rpm -qf path_to_erlang_binary
result: rpm_package or error

If that binary does not match what you're using, either you've
configured to use another erlang install, or it wasn't installed as an
rpm package.

If you have more than one erlang install available, query the
rpm db for each.

I don't have access to an rpm based distro, so I didn't verify
rpm -qf works, but it did the last time I used it.
