6.2.1. Searching Packages

You can search all RPM package names and summaries by using the following command:
dnf search term
Add the all to match against descriptions and URLs.
dnf search all term
This command displays the list of matches for each term. For example, to list all packages that match meld or kompare, type:
~]# dnf search meld kompare
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
============================== N/S Matched: meld ===============================
meld.noarch : Visual diff and merge tool
python-meld3.x86_64 : HTML/XML templating system for Python

============================= N/S Matched: kompare =============================
komparator.x86_64 : Kompare and merge two folders

  Name and summary matches only, use "search all" for everything.
