    Does it still remove the running kernel?

      Does it still format the root partition after running "dnf --help"?

        And we all know that DNF will be the default package system in Fedora 25.

          [x] As alternative side-by side with yum and red blinking beta-warnings.

            Yum never removed a running kernel for me, it only removes old ones (more than 2 updates old).

            Please, when you meet such an issue:
            - make sure it's not due to a design decision (probably not in this case),
            - report it to the developers.

              But DNF does it.

                Yes, because it was done that way deliberately.

                dnf erase kernel deletes all packages called kernel
                dnf versus yum

                I like yum remove kernel's functionality, but I guess it's not going to stick around.

                  He's referring to the fact that yum treats certain packages as special and has a running-list of "special" packages. One of them being the kernel. If you execute yum remove kernel it will remove all kernels except the one currently booted because it has special-handling for the kernel package. If you execute dnf remove kernel it removes ALL kernels, even the one currently booted. Majority of people don't care if they have old kernels installed and will just wait for them to get gradually flushed out as newer kernels come in, and therefore wont be running dnf remove kernel those that DO care PROBABLY know enough to that they need to specify WHICH kernels by version, and CAN do so.
