@HaukeLaging here is the new paste with timestamps. The 26 second offset is caused by me waiting before calling telnet.

nc, nc_out and telnet in that context are not code but names of programs/files

comment Query all paths in all packages/repos without installing?
Again, I recommend against this why would you? Well it could be very unwise to use it as the only safeguard but why would you recommend against?

comment Query all paths in all packages/repos without installing?
Honestly I think your answer could be just that one line: "use yum provides" and I'd still accept it as perfectly fine answer. While I appreciate the will to help, you seem to assume lack of other experience or research on part of poster/reader. For those like me who are already fairly experienced in world of FOSS/distros/bash/... and are just missing the yum command, 90% of the rest is mostly distraction.

as if you want to search all repos configured on a given system - yes, that's exactly what I want :) configure all existing repos on one system no I don't want that; I have a "sane" set of repos. OTOH, see: if the repos conflict among themselves (e.g. in commands), it does not actually break the scenario for me.

In fact, my general strategy is to verify it for Fedora (+rpmfusion) and Debian, and maybe then ask on other channels. The Debian part can be done by their (awesome) web search facilities. The Fedora part seems harder since there are usually more repos, so I was wondering if there are some yum super-powers to use.

@Gilles ...and yet, "Machine Check Architecture" is certainly better Google query than "mca" ;)
