Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 241931
yum provides comman doesn't return any results
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:58:12 EST
When querying for any file with yum provides <file_name> the result is No
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install yum-presto
2. rpm -ql yum-presto - you'll see presto.conf in /etc/yum/plugins.d
3. yum provides presto.conf
4. No Matches found
This was tested with yum-3.2.0-1.fc7
presto.conf doesn't exist in the package as a provide
/etc/yum/plugins.d/presto.conf DOES exist as a provide, though.
yum provides /etc/yum/plugins.d/presto.conf
yum provides \*presto.conf
if that doesn't work then it's a bug, please re-open it. Otherwise I'm closing
it as not a bug.
Ok, I understand now but it's a little confusing from the end-user stand point.
Would it be reasonable to implement so that yum provides presto.conf would still
return a result but mark it somehow (in color?) to indicate that the package
itself doesn't contain it?
