Description of problem:
Attempting to remove kernel packages related to the git6 kernel which possibly has a bug that precludes booting successfully.
Removing the extra kernel packages (see below) with dnf erase <packages> resulted in 584 additional packages wanting to be removed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.see script below
584 packages wanting to be removed
packages removed as requested
dnf --debugsolver erase \
All those packages are unneeded, so dnf automatically removes them.
but next dnf autoremove/remove will clean them... So if you want any of those packages, use `dnf mark install` on them.
I a little confused about what you've said.
These packages are already installed. Marking them as install wouldn't change that, right?
I presume that you mean not needed by other packages. Yes? That doesn't mean that someone (a user) isn't using them.
See the confusion?
