How do I remove old kernels from boot loader?


I apologize if this has been asked before. I looked through the past eight pages of threads, and didn't see anything on the matter.

Anyhow, I've updated my kernel twice since I made a clean install of FC1 onto my computer. When I boot up, it gives me three options on how to boot up. I'm perfectly happy with the most recent kernel, and would like to remove the option to boot into the other two kernels. If anyone can help, I would be extremely grateful.

Let me know if you need any hardware information or logs.

Tell me, oh tell me please, what boot loader are you using?

If you are using Grub, go to /boot/grub and modift grub.conf. You can take out the kernels you don't want to show up in Grub.

Procedur efor Lilo is the same, except you are looking for /boot/lilo and the file is called lilo.conf (I think)...

Thanks profjohn. Your advice worked.

P.S. How did I forget to include that I'm booting Grub?

If you installed your kernels with rpm, you should be able to remove them with rpm, and the rpm config should also remove them from grub.conf.
