Something like this will show you what files are in the package without
yumdownloader virtuoso-opensource-utils && rpm -qlp
On a side note the same can be achieved with "repoquery --list
virtuoso-opensource-utils" which will do the same thing using repo
metadata rather than downloading the package. repoquery is contained
in the yum-utils.
