Is this ok [y/N]: 
Operation aborted.

Expected results:

Core-features or running elements should be pinned or something

Additional info:

* some pictures
* dnf killed my running system (I wanted to see what happens). My desktop was running under KDM (don't ask why). See below.

dnf doing crazy things
Comment 2 Igor Gnatenko 2017-07-28 15:13:50 EDT
this is completely expected. if you remove something what was required by something else, it will be removed as well.
Comment 3 Andre Dierker 2017-07-28 15:17:13 EDT
Have you seen the pictures in the attatchments?
Comment 4 Igor Gnatenko 2017-07-28 15:33:20 EDT
dnf mark install samba-client.
