Description Zing 2007-08-24 09:41:57 EDT
Description of problem:
"man yum.conf" says that installonly_limit=0 is the default.  This is not true.
 I have to put that config in yum.conf, else the default is 2.  bad.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make sure installyonly_limit is not in yum.conf
2. make sure you have two kernels installed
3. make sure a kernel update is available
4. "yum update"
5. an old kernel package is removed

Actual results:
an old kernel package is removed

Expected results:
well, either the man page is wrong or the code is wrong.  personally, hard
coding yum to 2 seems like it is papering over some problem.  default should be
zero, but it seems that the people who matter want 2.  Either the code should
get hard coded to zero, or the man page should say default is 2.
