[OEL] HDI fully disable 'kernel' updates through yum

Hi Guys/Ladies,

I'd like to disable yum from updating just the kernel.

Everything is nice and stable with OEL 7.8 and I don't want any updates to the kernel but update everything else.

I know I'll miss out on features and have legacy security issues but it not a production enviro.


I've added this to /etc/yum.conf:

exclude=kernel*


It's had some effect as I don't see any updates through yumex but I've seen other examples that have more specific filter criteria. I'm looking for a general, all encompassing filter that will exclude all future updates.


Thanks guys, and ladies. ;-)
