How to delete unwanted kernels?


Hi,
I have several kernels on my RH8 install that I don't need anymore.What files.exactly, do you need to delete to get rid of them?
Obviously there's the source,but apart from that?


cheers

check /boot

should be self explanatory. Oh, and you'll want to remove the correct entries from your bootloader.

so, are you saying that any files in /boot that refer to the unwanted kernels can be deleted?
Are there any other files lurking in other folders that can be deleted?

cheers
Ludwig
