Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 247950
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:10 EST
Description of problem:
I think, bash should tell us, what command (package) to run (install).
It will make our life faster and nicer.
Run from bash program, which is not installed. You'll only see "command not found".
You'll only see "command not found", when program is not installed.
Completion on about package/command.
Hm, so if a user types "foo" and hits TAB, if there are no things installed that
start with "foo", bash-completion would invoke 'repoquery --file "/usr/bin/foo*"'?
I don't think that's feasible. First, running repoquery even with all needed
repodata files locally available takes much too long for this purpose, and even
if it were faster, I don't see how it would be useful to "complete" let's say
"foo" TAB to "foofoomatic-0:3.0.2-47.1.fc7.x86_64". And completing it to "yum
install foomatic-0:3.0.2-47.1.fc7.x86_64" would be dangerous as it would most
likely change the meaning of the "foo" command the user intended when he started
to type it.
Anyway, if you disagree, this is a feature request which would be better
directed at the upstream bash-completion author instead of its Fedora packagers.
