Remove the old kernel from Ubuntu November 25, 2007Posted by sandakith in linux, Open Source.
Ubuntu always keeps the old kernel when it install a new one, just in case this new one doesn’t work well for you.
You can uninstall the old one if you don’t use it anymore :
X@X-laptop:~$ sudo apt-get remove - -purge 2.6.24-17-*
Doing this will uninstall the packages related to the 2.6.15-23 kernel, like “linux-image-2.6.15-23-386”, “linux-restricted-modules-2.6.15-23-386”, etc. But if you have software like VMWare that has some heavy coupling with that particular version of the kernel you should not do this.
