Re: Removing old kernel

Hi,

Too many kernel are installed on my box:

[alain zarathoustra i386]$ rpm -qa | grep kernel | sort
kernel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4
kernel-2.6.12-1.1447_FC4

How can I remove cleanly the oldest and keep only the last?

rpm- -e the ones you no longer want.

For example:

# rpm -e \
	kernel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 \
	kernel-2.6.12-1.1447_FC4 \
	kernel-2.6.13-1.1526_FC4 \
	kernel-2.6.14-1.1644_FC4 \
	kernel-smp-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 \
	kernel-smp-2.6.12-1.1447_FC4 \
	kernel-smp-2.6.13-1.1526_FC4 \
	kernel-smp-2.6.14-1.1644_FC4

Just be sure not to delete the running kernel.

Paul.
