Description Ashok Gautham 2009-06-14 05:19:17 EDT
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):
Fedora 11. 

How reproducible:
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

Actual results:
keepcache is disabled in yum.conf

Expected results:
keepcache should be enabled (or) manpage of yum should be fixed.
Comment 1 James Antill 2009-06-14 20:23:33 EDT
 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).
