I want to quickly find a sequence for a list of sequence id's, so I
thought I would use formatdb to index the fasta format database and then
use the sequence retreival tool to query this index.

Is formatdb included in the NCBI rpm available from 


When I try to install this rpm (src), it doesn't show up when I search rpm
-q -a output.

I am just doing  

rpm -i NCBI-2.2.7-6.src.rpm (returns no error messages)

Is this correct?
