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.

cat /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/installonlyn.conf
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?

Cheers, Gene
