Description totalitout 2015-08-01 14:41:25 UTC
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Fedora; Linux x86_64; rv:39.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/39.0
Build Identifier: 

Using yumex-dnf when installing an updated kernel, the oldest kernel is not removed.  All kernels remain installed, apparently without limit.  The default to keep only the 3 newest kernels is ignored.  Running: dnf update removes excess kernels, the limit of 3 is observed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open yumex-dnf, run update.
2.Reboot to load updated kernel.
3.Kernel list displays more than 3 installed kernels.
Actual Results:  
More than 3 kernels remain installed.  The install only_limit config parameter default 3 is ignored.

Expected Results:  
Oldest kernel should be removed.  No more than 3 kernels should remain installed.

No error message.  Didn't have any indication of a problem except when rebooting noticed the excess kernels listed.  This needs to be fixed.  It could cause unaware users to run out of space in their /boot partition.

This is fixed in 4.1.4 and later currently in updates-testing for Fedora 21-23
