None of the other 8 boxes I installed this kernel on are experiencing this issue.
On these two I had to clean up /boot prior to installing the new kernel so Iím wondering if I didnít remove files properly OR just completely screwed something up that can hopefully be corrected easily.
Any thoughts? Also, what is the correct way to clean up /boot when it gets full?
to check the kernels that exist on your system, use the rpm command
rpm -q kernel
Be very careful when you remove the kernel packages. If you remove all of them ... (not sure if this is possible, never tried), you will never be able to boot up your server.
When I've cleared up /boot all I've ever done is remove all files relating to kernels older than the past 2 or 3. This is the first time I've ever experienced any issues with it though. Is there some "special" way to do it properly???
