I'm new to Fedora, and am running into an issue when I run an autoremove:

$ sudo dnf autoremove
Last metadata expiration check performed 0:06:12 ago on Sun Aug 23 11:22:09 2015.
Error: problem with installed package libXScrnSaver-1.2.2-8.fc22.i686.
problem with installed package libpng12-1.2.50-8.fc22.i686.
problem with installed package libtxc_dxtn-1:1.0.0-4.fc22.i686
(try to add '--allowerasing' to command line to replace conflicting packages)

When I allow erasing, it uninstalls steam, which I'm not keen on. How do I address the problems mentioned above?

How did you install steam? Looks like dnf doesn't know about your steam installation.

It's probably a bug, I tried it earlier and it deleted Eclipse, Codeblocks, Gimp, Arduino and other programs that it shouldn't... Good thing the settings were intact.
