Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1030998
install doesn't work for '*/binaryname' patterns
Last modified: 2014-09-30 19:41:51 EDT
Description of problem:
dnf install doesn't work for wildcards
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf install '*/i7z'
Nothing to do
Install of i7z package
dnf provides '*/i7z'
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.
IMO this is not a bug. Why are you using quotes when you WANT wildcards to be expanded, anyway?
It was a bug indeed.
