Resembles != equals. I'm four decades past learning new languages.
In simple terms, I want a search to return complete package names, base package
name with version string appended. Anything more that fits on a single line is a
bonus. Anything that routinely makes individual results require more than ~80
characters is too verbose.
$ grep RETT /etc/os-release
$ urpmq -y kernel-desk
