Description of problem:
When I run "yum whatprovides xalan" 40 times the package xalan-j2-demo.i386
2.7.0-6jpp.1 core is shown.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum whatprovides xalan > /tmp/xalan.log
2. grep "xalan-j2-demo.i386 2.7.0-6jpp.1 core"
/tmp/xalan.log |wc -l
Are you running fedora 7, yet? If so could you tell me if you have a similar
problem on yum there?
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
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.
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.
