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):

Comment 1 Seth Vidal 2008-04-21 15:42:18 EDT
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.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2008-04-21 15:49:13 EDT
Not really. I forget why I even ran into this.
Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 05:35:11 EDT
