Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 515776
repoquery cannot handle more than 8 args
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:10:43 EST
Description of problem:
"repoquery gawk grep" returns two lines, as expected.
But if I list 9 or more arguments, repoquery lists all packages in the repositories.
Actually, even "repoquery $(seq 9)" lists all the pakcages in the world.
Similarly with "repoquery -ql", as soon as 9 or more package names follows, the output contains all the files contained in all the available rpms.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I can't seem to replicate this - what ver of yum?
$ repoquery yum yum-utils awk grep bash zsh tcsh rpm rpm-python python xterm pidgin xchat
correction - upstream yum has fixed this and it'll be in a ver of yum in rawhide very soon.
