It's symptomatic of how fucking terrible this thread is, btw, that
people would post without checking any of this. It takes about ten
seconds to open a kernel and run 'yum remove foo', 'yum erase foo', 'dnf
remove foo', 'dnf erase foo'. If you're not going to go to *that* much
trouble, it's a bit rich to start excoriating the dnf devs.
