    Default Package Search Wierdness

    I use opensuse Package Search when I can't find something I need in my current repos.

    I am attempting to install support for OneWire File System on my 13.1/KDE 4.14.0 system, using Firefox 31.1.0

    I opened Package Search and entered 'owfs' and see two results, both ...src.rpms.
    But if I enter 'owfs-' in the search box, I see 15 installable .rpms (in both 32 bit and 64 bit flavors).

    This doesn't feel right, I would expect the 'owfs' search to find all 17 items.

    Am I missing something, or does this sound like a search bug?

    If bug, use Bugzilla for this sort of issue?

    Hm, when I search for 'ows', I get "owfs .... Show 10 Sub-Packages". When I click that , I get a list: fs, ftpd, httpd .... tcl. (I also get python-owfs btw so two items in total).
    And this is the same as I get using your link.

    When I search for 'ows-', I get those 10 items directly.

    Very different from what you report.

    Or do I misunderstand you completely?

    Oops, missed the 10 sub-packages expansion.

    You understand accurately.

    All set, thanks
