On upgrade, all packages get upgraded including the kernel
Comment 2 antonio montagnani 2006-03-27 14:40:43 EST

in previous releases (I am sure as I usually deleted all kernel but one before
updating and after upgrade I found two kernels, 4 in case of SMP-Kernel present)
kernel was added and old kernels were kept.
Comment 3 Thomas Steudten 2006-04-20 08:05:29 EDT
Old kernels, shouldn't be upgraded. Just install the new kernel, without remove
the old ones, like yum update does.
