Description Germano Massullo 2014-01-05 10:31:13 UTC
Description of problem:
I needed to know which packages provide:
- sandbox;
- seunshare
In both cases "dnf resolve" failed, instead yum successfully returned the name of the package.

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

Actual results:
# dnf provides sandbox
No Matches found

# yum provides sandbox
policycoreutils-python-2.2.2-3.fc20.x86_64 : SELinux policy core python utilities
Repo         : fedora

Comment 1 Ales Kozumplik 2014-01-06 07:26:08 UTC
this is mainly a documentation issue, the 'yum provides sandbox' etc. command only succeeds because of a hidden/undocumented feature in Yum.

Comment 2 Ales Kozumplik 2014-01-06 09:27:21 UTC
The different behavior is documented in 0d39e95, will be published along with the release of dnf-0.4.11.
