yum whatprovides. Does it work?
« on: November 16, 2023, 05:24:11 pm »
Hello

I guess that "yum whatprovides" is to find which rpm package provides a specific file.

For example if I try:
- yum whatprovides mmioos2*
I get:
- No Matches found
While the file  "mmioos2.h" is on the "os2tk45-headers" package.

Is it only supposed to be searching the local drive? or it also search for file in the RPM servers?
Am I missing something on the call of the command? caps?

Hi Martin,
I use yum whatprovides */mmioos2
or
yum --noplugins -C provides */mmioos2*
