I'm creating two versions of an RPM and I want yum to keep the old versions when installing the new one. There is no conflicting files. Is this at possible?

Yes, if the package name starts with kernel. Otherwise, add the version as a suffix to the name of the old package.

Name: foobar09

Thanks. I really don't want to change the name of the packages. I did not know about the kernel one. Fun, albeit pretty much useless in my case. –  bofjas May 23 '13 at 12:27
