Q: How do I find which rpm package supplies a file I'm looking for?

wheresthephAs an example, I am looking for a mod_files.sh file which presumably would come with the php-devel package.

Ok, this is a bit puzzling. This probably has nothing to do with Unix, but why does SANE detect my Brother scanner even when it is turned off?
