Feature #308437, revision 5
Title: zypper search in package content

- openSUSE-11.3: New
+ openSUSE-11.3: Evaluation
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Michal Vyskocil (mvyskocil)

Description:
Zypper search should be extended to search also in a filelist of
package, which can make webpin or package pin obsolete.
zypper search --search-content gpm.h
Will return all packages matching 'gpm.h' string in a filelist.

webpin still would allow searching inside a not installed package

This feature is especially important when you're compiling software.
For example today I was building something and gcc complained that
glibconfig.h was missing. There was no way to find out which of the
hundreds of -devel packages provided this file, except for guessing (it
was in glib2-devel). Many header files are much more difficult to find
than glib ones.
In Mandriva, which has this feature (see
http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Tools/urpmi#urpmf), I could've just done:
urpmf glibconfig.h
and it would've said 'glib2-devel'
