Thanks, Marc!

So wouldn't the existence of the /pkgs directory under /QOpenSys indicate
that various open source packages had been installed via ACS?

I'm just looking for a quick and dirty way to verify whether or not the
install from ACS has been done - don't care which packages are there (at
the moment).

All -

Back in the "olden days", open source packages were delivered in licensed
program 5733-OPS and one could check for the existence of this licensed
program to determine whether or not a partition had open source packages

Today, since open source packages are delivered via ACS, how can we check
for the existence of open source packages on a partition via green

I would not say that they are delivered via iACS. I would say that iACS
is a user interface to the delivery with yum. iACS just runs yum command
and displays the output for you.

So, via green screen, through a PASE or QSH session you can use yum your
self. You just have to make sure to have /QOpenSys/pkgs/bin in your
path, or use it to qualify yum. Example through QSH.

/QOpenSys/pkgs/bin/yum list

Is there a service that would perform this check?
