This one should be for Sven. By poking around in my
/lib/modules/kernel-version/extras/ directories, I've apparently come to
the conclusion that my disappearing kmod-ntfs (and kmod-ndiswrapper)
installs are caused by the same mechanism as the default kernel update,
wherein only one older kernel is kept while all older kernels are removed.
There was a fix to make it keep the last 5 kernels which I applied,
unforch I can't now find the file where that particular variable is set.
My question then is, where do I set a similar keepit variable for
kmod-ntfs and kmod-ndiswrapper? Last nights reboot to a known good
working kernel only to find it had been silently emasculated by yum was
a very unpleasant experience.
it's part of yum's "installonlyn" plugin.
tokeep = 4
enabled = 1
i.e. keep 4 previous kernels around. :)
My enabled = 0 is now a 1, and tokeep was already at 5.
Does this effect stuffs other than the kernel now with enabled = 1?
