Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1270295
dnf bash-completion is a bit flaky
Last modified: 2017-08-09 04:07:51 EDT
Description of problem:
The bash-completion of dnf does not always work properly. I will give a few examples here:
- "dnf list pe<TAB>" is not auto-completed while "dnf list available pe<TAB>" works as expected.
- "dnf -y ..." is never completed whatever follows
- "dnf install abc<TAB>" is autocompleted but the completion also shows packages that are already installed, while "dnf remove abc<TAB>" appears to work correctly. That is, it proposes only packages that are installed.
- When new repos are added (eg. a copr has just been enabled) the bash-completion is not aware about their presence until dnf somehow populates the cache. For which incidentally a simple "dnf makecache" is not sufficient and a "--refresh" needs to be specified.
Version-Release number of selected component:
Consistently, with the provided examples.
Thanks for the report.
Could that be improved, Igor?
Otherwise it could be fixed by argcomplete integration.
This appears to be duplicate of bz#1227980
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 24 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 2 (two) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 24. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 24 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
