When I do a yum list installed and I get a list of the installed packages for the local system.

However, I have no idea where this data is coming from, is it coming from the
/var/lib/rpm ,

or perhaps somewhere else? Is there a switch I could use to change the db, or to point to a different yumdb/dir?
