Thanks Rex - I knew there was an answer I hadn't found...
But, I also knew that what I was wanting to do was as per the kernel -
so, why isn't there an 'installonlypkgs' line for the kernel in dnf.conf
- I would have found what I was after if there was...
If fact, iirc, I believe I looked at 'installonlypkgs' in the man page,
noted waht it said about kernels and dismissed that option because there
is no line in dnf.conf for the kernel...
You may have another problem installing both
master-pdf-editor-4.3.89-1.x86_64 and master-pdf-editor-5.3.16_qt5.x86_64
because if they are like most packages they will use the same file
locations so only one can be installed at a time. The kernel packages are
special in this respect because they install in version specific
Incidentally if you look hard enough in the dnf code you can see that
that installonlypkgs is set for the kernel packages by default which is
why you can't see it in the configuration files.
