i am running mandriva gnome 2009
Correction not every update , only if the update includes a new kernel
But it is possible to delete the kernel not in use and also remove it from the menu.lst
I do not now how big you're hd is ?
But there is also a maximum of old kernels kept by Mandriva ,it does not go for ever and ever .
Before deleting the kernel and the option from the menu.lst be sure the new kernel works for you.
