When I mis-type a command, the shell tries to find a package that provides it. How do I disable this feature?


[dave@dave cpp]$ sl
bash: sl: command not found...
Install package 'sl' to provide command 'sl'? [N/y] 

I'd like if if I weren't prompted to install the command.

Wow, that seems annoying beyond reason! I know Ubuntu uses similar package suggestion, but at least it doesn't end in a prompt. Is this standard in Fedora Desktop? I run Fedora on a server and do not recognize it. –  Daniel Andersson Sep 5 '13 at 15:04

The problem is PackageKitCommandNotFound. Removing it

yum remove PackageKit-command-not-found

should do the trick, according to the mailing list.
