Default yum whatprovides not matching files

For example, I have kwrite installed, but ...

[root@home etc]# which kwrite
/usr/bin/kwrite
[root@home etc]# yum whatprovides kwrite
fedora 100% |=========================| 2.1 kB 00:00
primary.sqlite.bz2 100% |=========================| 4.9 MB 00:06
adobe-linux-i386 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00
primary.xml.gz 100% |=========================| 1.3 kB 00:00
adobe-linu: ################################################## 2/2
updates 100% |=========================| 2.3 kB 00:00
primary.sqlite.bz2 100% |=========================| 466 kB 00:05
No Matches found

You can see that yum never bothers to download the filelists.

Is there a way to make this work as expected?

Thanks!

What is it exactly that you're expecting?

Maybe
yum install /usr/bin/kwrite
is what you're looking for.

yum whatprovides /*/kwrite

is a bit clumsy but should work.

Because it is looking for a match with the path added to the file.

Sure there is:

yum whatprovides `which kwrite`

works wonders...
