Re: Does dnf support wildcards like yum did?

Thanks! That worked. And, you're correct, the problem turned out to be that there was a file in the current directory whose name started with 'gimp'. I did a cd to another directory with no files by that name and "dnf list gimp*" worked fine. But in the directory with a file starting with gimp, I had to use the single quotes. Weird, I've used RedHat and Fedora for years and never run into that before. If yum had the same behavior I guess I just never happened to use a wildcard search in a directory that had a similarly named file...
