Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 505838
keepcache values contradict between the manpage and /etc/yum.conf
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:09:48 EST
Description of problem:
According to the manpage, keepcache option should be enabled by default. In /etc/yum.conf however, the value of keepcache is set to 0. Either the conf file or the manpage needs to be fixed
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It need to be reproduced. It is ever present on the system
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check /etc/yum.conf and notice that keepcache is 0
2. man yum says that keepcache is enabled by default
keepcache is disabled in yum.conf
keepcache should be enabled (or) manpage of yum should be fixed.
The default, if keepcache is not listed in the yum.conf file is enabled. This is what the man page says and it's true.
The upstream yum.conf has keepcache=1, which overrides that. But Eg. the Fedora distro. yum.conf has keepcache=0 (which just repeats the default if it's not listed).
