RFE: Case-insensitive yum
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:06:11 EST
Description of problem:
Package names given to yum are case sensitive
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt install of package (eg. "miro")
No package are installed, however I am asked if I meant "Miro"
The "Miro" package is installed
Having the suggestion of "Miro" is nice, but considering the overheard of retrieving the repo data for each yum command, do the packages really need to be case sensitive?
First, if you've just run yum, running immediately after will not download anything at all. It will be using all cached data.
Second, if you're going to ask to change the state of your system I think it makes sense to make sure you are asking for exactly what you get.
