Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 442918
debuginfo-install only works for installed packages
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:14:06 EDT
Description of problem:
If you try 'debuginfo-install kdebase', and you don't have kdebase installed, it
won't find anything.
This may be intentional (not sure what the usage case of this would be), but I
figured I'd make sure.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
it is intentional. here's the code we use to do the lookup:
for pkgglob in self.cmds:
e, m, u = self.rpmdb.matchPackageNames([pkgglob])
so we're only ever looking up for name matches against the rpmdb, not all packages.
Do we want it otherwise? It feels a little odd to be installing debuginfo pkgs
AND the software you want at the same time.
Not really. I forget why I even ran into this.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
