I have installed bash completion using
yum install --enablerepo=epel bash-completion. While it works for some basic commands (git & yum), I am missing a large part of the completers.
/etc/bash_completion.d contains the following:
git iprutils redefine_filedir yum yummain.py yum-utils.bash
However, I know there is bash_completion for i.e. make (which is installed) and a lot more, compare i.e. to the sample output here.
How can I get the missing completer scripts? (Preferably with yum, so I do not have to update them manually)
If it matters: tab completion works, but I am not sourcing anything in my .bashrc. It just started working after installing the package.
UPDATE: After checking the version of bash completion I have installed as @fduff suggested I saw the following:
$ yum list installed | grep completion
bash-completion.noarch 1:2.1-6.el7 @base
However trying uninstalling it and forcing centos to install bash_completion from the epel repository with
sudo yum install --enablerepo=epel bash-completion --disablerepo=base yielded
package not found.
Further checking yielded that the new package which is now in @base puts the completion files into
/usr/share/bash-completion/completions, however I am still missing some, i.e.
sudo (kind of sucks that
sudo command [tab] does not complete while
command [tab] does), furthermore I sitll can't find the bit for
make (which should list the targets that are in
UPDATE2: The changelog states:
- Fri Nov 01 2013 Petr Stodulka - 2.1-6
- Install only available completions (#810343 - comment 15) without "tar" and remove the other.
- Fri Sep 13 2013 Roman Rakus - 2.1-5
- Added one more missing conditional Resolves: #1007839
- Fri Sep 13 2013 Roman Rakus - 2.1-4
- Added conditionals to not add completions for some commands; the packages has their own completions Resolves: #1007839
Thus reinstalling sudo, after I had bash_completion installed worked for the
sudo completion, however I had no such luck with make.

make bash completion in Centos 7?
