Description Jaroslav Škarvada 2013-11-15 13:03:42 UTC
Description of problem:
dnf install doesn't work for wildcards

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf install '*/i7z'

Actual results:
Nothing to do

Expected results:
Install of i7z package

Additional info:
dnf provides '*/i7z'
i7z-0.27.2-8.fc20.x86_64 ...

yum install '*/i7z'
...install in progress

This is handy speed-up if one know the name of the binary but not the name of the package (or can't remember) and is pretty sure there will be only one match (if not he/she can still cancel the installation).

Hm, this could be either a bug in the subject parsing or something we don't do for perfomance reasons (the filename lookup is expensive, esp. if it contains globbing). We'll look into that.

Comment 2 Zdeněk Pavlas 2013-11-18 09:20:26 UTC
IMO this is not a bug. Why are you using quotes when you WANT wildcards to be expanded, anyway?
