I have taken on a small role in Linux system administration.

I normally use xclock to verify X configuration. Wait, there is no xclock on the server; however it is installed on another server.

Here is what I did.

 [root@hawk ~]# which xclock
 [root@hawk ~]# rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/X11R6/bin/xclock
 [root@hawk ~]#
