Are you running fedora 7, yet? If so could you tell me if you have a similar
problem on yum there?
Comment 2 Till Maas 2007-07-27 05:15:14 EDT
With yum-3.2.2-1.fc7 "yum whatprovides xalan" returns "No Matches found". With
"yum whatprovides xalan\*" it seems to work fine, but it downloads all
filelists.sqlite.bz2 files.

Comment 3 Seth Vidal 2007-07-27 09:54:53 EDT
I'm looking in my release and there's nothing that actually does provide xalan.
So I wouldn't expect yum whatprovides xalan to work.

And the reason yum whatprovides xalan\* downloads all of the filelists is b/c it
is looking in the files, too, b/c of the wildcard.

Comment 4 Till Maas 2007-07-27 10:21:32 EDT
Hm, ok, seems that yum changed the behaviour regarding "whatprovides", because
earlier versions applied some kind of wildcarding on the argument itself. But
with yum not being stuck in an endless loop, this works for me.
