regular expressions in rpmdrake 'Find'

Recommended Posts

I just found out by chance that 'rpmdrake' (the default Mandriva package manager) supports Perl regular expressions in it's 'Find' entry field, too!


For example entering the following in the search field:


will find all packages that start with 'kernel' (^kernel) then contain any random characters (.*), followed by 'latest'.


I guess that's because 'rpmdrake' is written in Perl.


Just thought this knowledge might be useful to someone else too.
