Description Spider 2008-06-24 19:17:52 UTC
Description of problem:
My "recent" Fedora 9 install has a few old kernel images in the Grub menu (which
I have to page through each boot due to dual-booting) and I cannot remove them
with PackageKit as it is shipped with Fedora 9

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

How reproducible:
Install and update

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open "add remove software"  
2. Search for "kernel"  
3. select one of the many versions installed and try to uninstall it.
4. Miserable failure, claims it wants to remove half your system.

Actual results:

Expected results:
Removing old unneeded packages.

Additional info:
Hopefully fixed already, but fix is not propagated to default system.
