That's afaics not what Bruno proposes. What he afaics means is: when a
new kernel gets released, than the package kernel-modules-extra (just
like the kernel itself) needs to be installed (like a "rpm -i" would do)
and not updated (rpm -U), otherwise you loose the modules for current or
older kernels on "yum update" every time a new kernel gets released.
Ah, indeed. My apologies Bruno, I misread "install only" as
"install". Your RFE sounds good indeed.
