I am getting /tmp/yum_save_tx.2017-12….. files in /tmp one every hour. What process is making these files ???
I have stopped PackageKit so its not running.

I am running CentOS 7.4. With GNOME desktop. Thanks

  • Ok so I looked for yum in cron and did not find it.

    cd /etc
    # grep yum cron*

    grep: cron.d: Is a directory grep: cron.daily: Is a directory grep: cron.hourly: Is a directory grep: cron.monthly: Is a directory grep: cron.weekly: Is a directory

    # grep yum cron*/*

    and the files:
    ls -lR cron.*
    -rw-r–r–. 1 root root 5 Jan 25 2016 cron.allow
    -rw——- 1 root root 0 Aug 3 11:33 cron.deny
