| Hi Yordy. Edit /etc/yum.conf as root, and change the line.
| keepcache=0  to keepcache=1
|
| While your at it, and if you want to keep more than the default 2 kernels, add

| installonly_limit=0

| That will disable yum from trashing kernels you may want to keep (the 0 is a
| zero by the way).


I have to ask you Nigel. Why would you want to keep more that two kernels when
you have the one that is currently running and the previous one that was
running when the current one was installed?
