I have 4 (four) kernels running on the PC which is the result of running 'yum update'. Kindly advise how to remove the old kernels without endangering the OS. I suppose running GRUB as bootloader. Is there a way to confirm it.
$ rpm -qa | grep kernel-SMP
$ rpm -qa | grep kernel-BOOT
all no output
i was just telling u that u can safely remove theeses kernels as these are of less use to u
the kernels u hae installed are the various version of the kernel
1. is 2.6.6
2. kernel source --u need to keep that if u want to compile ur kernel
3. is 2.6.8
4. is 2.6.5
5. is 2.6.7
6. small kernel utils package required for kernel compiling and other work(need not remove that)
it is upto u to chose which kernel out of the 2.6.8-2.6.6-2.6.5 or 2.6.7
se that the kernel u8 use supports all ur functionalities
and u have the rpms of these
so in the near future if u require those u do not have a problem in that
