Description Jaromir Hradilek 2011-09-02 14:32:45 UTC
Description of problem:
The repoquery(1) manual page claims that the repoquery utility allows a user to display information about a package even when the package is not installed (for example, the "repoquery -l <package_name>" is supposed to produce output similar to "rpm -ql <package_name>", etc.). However, an attempt to use any of the command line options described in the "PACKAGE QUERY OPTIONS" section of the aforementioned manual page does not produce any output or error.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in as the root user:

   ~]$ su -

2. Make sure the package you are about to query is in available
   repositories, for example:

   ~]# yum info net-snmp
   Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, rhnplugin
   Installed Packages
   Name        : net-snmp
   Arch        : x86_64

3. Attempt to query information about the package or list
   its content:

   ~]# repoquery -i net-snmp
   ~]# repoquery -l net-snmp
   ~]# echo $?

Actual results:
The command terminates without output and returns exit code 0 (success).

Expected results:
Output similar to the one in Fedora 14, for example:

   ~]# repoquery -i net-snmp

   Name        : net-snmp
   Version     : 5.5
   Release     : 31.el6

Additional info:
The system is up-to-date and is registered with RHN Classic.

Comment 2 James Antill 2011-09-16 19:15:53 UTC
 This is due to rhn, you need to pass --plugins to get access to the RHN repos.

 RHSM should solve this.
