Disappearing Kernels during Yum update

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Over the past few weeks there have been kernel updates for Fedora 11. 

When my system receives updates, usually using yumex, and a new kernel is installed, the oldest kernel in my /boot directory is deleted automatically and any "title" commands in /boot/grub/grub.conf referring to those kernels is also removed.  There are only three kernels at a time in my /boot directory.

So far this has not been a problem, though I almost lost some special settings in my grub.conf file when old kernels were removed.

My questions:

What controls how many kernels, vmlinuz and associated files, are kept in the /boot directory? 

Is there any way to change this to save a different number of kernels or insure that a specific kernel is not automatically removed from your system?
