Comment 1 Radek Holy 2015-09-16 05:40:09 EDT
Can you please tell us how many kernels you had installed ("rpm -q kernel") and what installonly_limit did you set ("cat /etc/dnf/dnf.conf")?
Comment 2 Heiko Adams 2015-09-16 05:45:27 EDT
$ rpm -q kernel

$ cat /etc/dnf/dnf.conf
Comment 3 Honza Silhan 2015-09-30 04:15:31 EDT
Can you try `dnf mark install kernel*`, do autoremove again and share the result, please?
