I want to ask on something not exactly to topic, but it's side of it. I
have a problem find command in dnf which is in yum.
When I'm using this command I get information which package contains
$ yum provides *libnetapi.so
but when I'm using dnf command
$ dnf repoquery --provides *libnetapi.so
Is there a way to find libraries and other files in dnf?
Thank you for answer.
