old kernels not appearing with YUMEX

I have 3 kernels installed. When I look at my installed kernels with yumex or package kit all I see is the latest kernel.
rpm -qa lists them and I was able to remove the oldest using rpm -e.
Is this some new feature of YUMEX and package kit to only show the latest version installed?

Hello pkands,

The old kernels are not retained in the repository.

Are you viewing "Installed" or "Available" (radio-button on "Packages" tab) ? If "Available", then: yes, all you will see is latest. If "Installed", then you should see all three (or however many are actually installed).

Why ? Flag 'install_only' in /etc/yum.conf defines number of kernels to keep. Three is default, for reasons well-documented elsewhere: having at least one back-up is a Good Idea™©® with Fedora, where kernel updates have been known to break stuff.

I still only see one kernel (installed or available button used) installed with yumex

but using yum list:
Installed Packages
kernel-PAE.i686 2.6.31.5-127.fc12 @rawhide
kernel-PAE.i686 2.6.31.6-145.fc12 @updates
kernel-firmware.noarch 2.6.31.6-145.fc12 @updates

rpm -qa
kernel-firmware-2.6.31.6-145.fc12.noarch
kernel-PAE-2.6.31.6-145.fc12.i686
kernel-PAE-2.6.31.5-127.fc12.i686

The solution is select the "All" option but leave out the kernel word for the search criteria and it will show up. "Operator Headspace" on my part....
