I don't believe I've seen someone point out *this* distinction, the
different parameters being written after "yum," in this thread, that
different people have written while trying to work it out:

  yum search
  yum provides

Note *that* difference, search or provides, not the actual
gnome-tweak-tool thing being looked for, as to why it's not doing what
you expect.  They do different jobs.

trying to privately email me, I will only read messages posted to the

George Orwell's '1984' was supposed to be a warning against tyranny, not
a set of instructions for supposedly democratic governments.
