Question Redhat9 Kernel updates?


I have used the automated update thru redhat network and have recieved a number of kernel updates including sources for them.

Can I now just delete the old kernels and sources?
If so where are they and how to delete them?

Thanks.

If the new kernel is working well, then you can delete the old one.

First, we need to get a list of all kernel packages that are installed on your system.
Open a console window and use the following command:
Code:
rpm -qa | grep kernel
Using the list as reference, you can remove all the RPMs at once using this command:
Code:
rpm -e <package>

target

2.4.20-8&9, 2.4.20-18.9, source-2.4.20-18.9

do a rpm -e --test before you remove these

leave the others, esp the pcmcia, wlan, etc.

rpm -e --test kernel-2.4.20-8 kernel-2.4.20-9 and the rest
