Description Jeffrey Walton 2014-01-01 11:47:49 UTC
After upgrading from Fedora 19 to Fedora 20 using `fedora-upgrade` per https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Upgrading_Fedora_using_yum, I ran `package-cleanup --orphans` to find packages that were not upgraded. The following were not upgraded:

* kernel-3.11.10-200.fc19.x86_64
* kernel-3.12.5-200.fc19.x86_64
* kernel-modules-extra-3.11.10-200.fc19.x86_64
* kernel-modules-extra-3.12.5-200.fc19.x86_64
* kmod-VirtualBox-3.12.5-200.fc19.x86_64-4.3.6-1.fc19.1.x86_64

A subsequent `yum remove kmod-VirtualBox-3.12.5-200.fc19.x86_64-4.3.6-1.fc19.1.x86_64` resulted in a removal of VirtualBox.

VirtualBox was reinstalled using `yum install VirtualBox`, but with a different driver (see below).

Something seems mildly astray since an orphaned F19 component removed VirtualBox on F20. I would have expected a VirtualBox upgrade with the rest of the system; or a good package dependecy graph so VirtualBox would remain.

Comment 1 Miroslav Suchý 2014-11-25 00:24:23 UTC
kmod is kernel module. And fedora keeps 2 last kernels (in case one fail, you can boot to another). Therefore keeping fc19 kernel (and its modules) is fine and expected.
