I had been using Ubuntu and recently migrated to RedHat.
The apt-get install auto completion is very handy, so I supposed yum install should have this function as well, but seemed it doesn't.
Is there tab completion for package name of yum install ?

Make sure you have:

yum install bash-completion

Then logout console or close command line and log back in. Than try:

$ yum in[TAB][TAB]
info     install

$ yum ins[TAB]  ## and you get "yum install"
