View Full Version : Removing old kernels

6th September 2006, 06:22 PM
This is probably a dumb question, but I'll ask anyway.

I have 3 kernels on my system, two installed via RPM and one I built myself. I'd like to remove the older kernels to free up space. I assume that "rpm -e kernel-xx.xx" will do the trick, But I want to be sure that doing so isn't going to make changes to /boot or grub that will render my system unbootable. Is this the recommended approach?

The rpm approach should work fine. I've used it to remove old kernels pre FC5.

I agree. This is the means I also use to remove them. It is safe.
