Screen capture of dnf erase yumex-dnf
This is from a 32 bit machine. The kernel being removed is an old kernel but still shouldn't be included.
For some reason, the entry was saved before I had entered all the data.
While trying to diagnose and report issues with yumex-dnf, I was going to remove it and re-install. During the removal, included applications being removed during the function were critical to operation. Tried on a 32 and 64 bit machines. Different dependencies.
Tried this on two different machines with different responses.
I have uploaded a screen capture of the issue. Removing a kernel, even old is not a thing to see if removing an application not involved with the kernel.
Also, should dnfdaemon be part of the packages removed?
On the 64 bit machine, sorry, no screen capture. SELINUX related tools are being removed. This is concerning from a security point of view.
This is a feature of dnf, to automatic remove leftover packages like old kernel versions, it has nothing to do with yumex-dnf
