Hi all,

yesterday I was able to update my Fedora Core 5.

For first I updated yum
May 08 12:28:41 Updated: yum.noarch 2.6.1-0.fc5

After that I run the yum update --exclude=openoff* and in the log I

May 08 13:44:00 Installed: kernel-devel.x86_64 2.6.16-1.2111_FC5
May 08 13:45:04 Installed: kernel.x86_64 2.6.16-1.2111_FC5

In the same time yum removed the older kernel.
The query in the rpm database first of update was


and after the update is


The problem is that grub.conf is unchanged, and in the /boot directory I
don't find nothing about the 2111 kernel, but I find all about the 2080
that I think are to be removed.

Someone is in the same situation?

The rpm -e of all about the 2111 and the rpm -I of the last kernel is a
good solution?


Why yum is removing the older kernel?

High jacking a thread here... Thats one of the reasons I don't like yum putzing with my grub.conf.

At home, I've been building the latest Linus or Greg KH kernels from scratch, and I've found that there does not seem to be a maximum number of entries in my grub.conf, so I only clean house when the /boot partition is pretty well filled up, meaning there are probably 20+ entries in my grub.conf at any one time.

To me, editing grub.conf is a no-brainer, and it stays a heck of a lot neater appearing than when yum does it.

So my question then is: Can yum be told to dl and install the new kernels but leave grub.conf alone, and not remove the older kernel?

Cheers, Gene
