Hi Joseph,
thank you for replying.
Shall I use the oe-pkgdata-util find-path this way?
oe-pkgdata-utilĀ  find-path /usr/bin/hexdump
Because I'm encountering an error
ERROR: Unable to find any package producing path /usr/bin/hexdump
So I think I am doing something wrong

Hi Luca,

I think you either need the right key/string:

$ oe-pkgdata-util find-path /bin/ls.coreutils

coreutils: /bin/ls.coreutils

or to use a wildcard and quotes:

$ oe-pkgdata-util find-path "/bin/ls*"

coreutils: /bin/ls.coreutils

kmod: /bin/lsmod.kmod

For help:

$ oe-pkgdata-util

oe-pkgdata-util: error: the following arguments are required: <subcommand>
