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