Description of problem:
setting the onlyn to e.g 5 result in installation of 4 kernels. On
installation of the 5th every already installed kernel but the running kernel
I think this is due to the design of the break condition in the
postresolve_hook function in installonlyn.
The variable numleft will already be 0 before decrementing when on
installation of the last kernel of the preselected set size.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set to_keep=4 (/etc/yum/pluginconf.d/installonlyn.conf)
2. install a kernel (no 1, in adition to the running kernel)
3. install a kernel (no 2)
4. install a kernel (no 3)
Actual Results: Only 2 kernels are installed (the running + the newest)
Expected Results: The preset to_keep number of kernels present: only the oldest dropped
when the "desired" count would have been exceeded.
reproducibility: this happens on istallation of every (n-1)'th kernel (with
to_keep=n) - if I got the arithmetic right.
duplicate of 176704. sorry
