I'm using Fedora and wonder if there is some way I can exclude kernel updates when I run
yum update, until I specifically want to update the kernel.
The reason why I am concerned about this is because sometimes it requires a lot of extra research finding patches for some programs and extra time spent recompiling them to work on the new kernel. I am thinking VMWare specifically as one example.
I wonder if there is some way for
yum update to NOT update the kernel and only notify me that a new one is available when it goes through its routine so that I can decide to put it off until a more convenient time. Or is this thinking likely to cause other issues?
