Linux Mint – How to remove the old kernel versions from the boot partition
It is this time of the year that you need to clean up your Linux OS 🙂
Every time you update your Linux kernel with the new version, the old one remains under the /boot partition until you manually remove it. This will make your /boot partition to go fast out of space at some point and it will create issues with your system.
A nice tactic is to clean it after some time and when you make sure that the newest kernel is stable.
In this tutorial i am using the GUI of Update manager to remove the kernels and not the terminal as a lot of new guys asking me how to…and in my opinion this is the safest way to do so.
Please always use the uname -r or -a to verify the current version of your kernel and avoid to remove this file..otherwise you’ll go back to windows 😛
I hope this video will help someone..if it helped you please leave a comment or a like!!!
