Where is the finger command?


I have a system with Rocky 8.5 x86-64.

I wish to know what package provides the finger command.

“dnf provides finger”, didn’t provide me any answer.

Is the finger command deprecated or banned from Rocky?

The finger and finger-server were deprecated already in RHEL 7.
“Functionality removal” is listed in Considerations in adopting RHEL 8 Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 | Red Hat Customer Portal

You can use pinky, instead. It’s quite similar

You can take the finger source rpm from RHEL7 and build a finger for Rocky 8 and Rocky 9

rpmbuild --rebuild finger-0.17-52.el7.src.rpm
