You used to be able to install the rpmdb-fedora package and do "rpm -q
--redhatprovides /usr/bin/uudecode". They took rpmdb-fedora out of
FC4 in favor of using yum for that sort of thing.
Now you need to have the yum-utils package installed, but then you can
$ repoquery --whatprovides /usr/bin/uudecode
Running from cache, results might be out of date.
There's some nifty stuff in the yum-utils package. I highly recommend
it. With it installed, I almost don't miss apt. :-)
If you were using apt, you could just "apt-get install
/usr/bin/uudecode" and it would do the right thing, but apt appears to
be on its way out too...
