    How to Disable Auto Kernel Update


    I'm running Fedora 15.
    Its kernel was 2.6.41.
    When I switch on my fedora this morning, I found that its kernel is automatically updated to 2.6.42.
    Because of this change, my virtual machines in VirtualBox refused to start.
    I have had this problem before when the kernel changed from 2.6.40 to 2.6.41.

    Can anyone tell me how to disable this automatic update of the kernel?

    Are you running YUM set to update your system automatically?

    How do I check that and if enabled, how would I disable it?

    Check cron. Most likely in the cron.daily section.

    What is the output of the following command;

    Code:
    chkconfig --list yum-updatesd
