Re: get rid of old kernels



Don't forget to manually delete the /lib/modules/kernel-version directory.

to list all the kernels installed do:

[jeff eye_gore ~]$ rpm -qa kernel
kernel-2.6.10-1.770_FC3
kernel-2.6.11-1.14_FC3
kernel-2.6.9-1.667

To erase the one you want removed do:

[jeff eye_gore ~]$ su -c "rpm -e kernel-2.6.9-1.667"
Password:
[jeff eye_gore ~]$

Repeat for each kernel version to remove.

As someone has already said it has been discussed several times, but for
this use, rpm is much nicer than yum.
