Description Bill Peck 2006-06-14 17:14:06 EDT
Description of problem:
resolvedep doesn't seem to work in the latest version of yum in rawhide.  I can
install the package with the file name that should have been resolved by yum so
I know the metadata is good.

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

How reproducible:
every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install rawhide-20060614
2. try to use the resolvedep argument for yum.
3. yum resolvedep /usr/bin/screen
Yum will come back with no packages found.  yet doing a yum install screen will

Additional info:
Currently this is how we figure out which test rpm to install for a given test
in RHTS.  So this prevents us from testing xen in the latest rawhide.
