Description Tomasz Torcz 2014-02-09 14:10:45 UTC
Description of problem:

% yum erase kernel
--> Processing Dependency: kernel >= 2.6.17 for package: 1:autofs-5.0.7-28.fc19.x86_64

  Dependency on kernel can be dropped:
1) 2.6.17 was a loooong time ago, currently it is nowhere to be found in any supported Fedora version
2) there are valid installation scenarios without kernel - LXC containers do not need separate kernel

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

The same problem is present in F20 an rawhide versions.

Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2015-01-09 22:24:04 UTC
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
