Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 427299
Yum advanced search needed!
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:01:17 EST
Description of problem:
Finding packages without knowing there names is very time consuming and slow.
For example searching for Glib returns roughly 100 entries which I then need to
troll though to find the correct package.
An an advanced search is required even a simple one that allowed you to remove
processor architectures and search only in the description or package name. Also
the ability to search for ALL terms in the search box rather than ANY terms
would be a vast improvement.
what version of yum are you using? and have you used 'yum search'?
yum search foo bar baz
will first return all packages having foo, bar AND baz in any of: summary,
description or name fields.
then it returns packages having any two
then it returns packages having any one
so if you want the BEST responses then you could do something like:
yum search foo bar baz | head -10
