When I found this parameter, I was thinking exactly as you describe @giacomo...
But the reality is different, to be clear, see the exact timeline:
- I had 5 kernels, and the installonly_limit = 5 ( before I
- I change installonly_limit = 2 ... And waited ( still with 5
- Past thuesday or friday, there's a kernel update... I expected
to see only 2 kernels, but I found 6 kernels.!!!! :OMG:
Now I had two kernel because I made a manual cleanup.
When there's an update by the CenterSoftware, the parameter installonly_limit = 2 seem to be ignored...
