A question on removing spare kernels


Hi folks,

FC2

I have following kernels running on my OS
$ rpm -qa | grep kernel
kernel-2.6.6-1.435.2.3
kernel-source-2.6.5-1.358
kernel-2.6.8-1.521
kernel-2.6.9-1.3_FC2
kernel-2.6.5-1.358
kernel-2.6.7-1.494.2.2
kernel-2.6.9-1.6_FC2
kernel-utils-2.4-9.1.131
kernel-2.6.9-1.11_FC2

I am going to remove all following spare kernels
kernel-2.6.6-1.435.2.3
kernel-2.6.8-1.521
kernel-2.6.9-1.3_FC2
kernel-2.6.5-1.358
kernel-2.6.7-1.494.2.2
kernel-2.6.9-1.6_FC2

only retaining
kernel-2.6.9-1.11_FC2
kernel-source-2.6.5-1.358
kernel-utils-2.4-9.1.131

Kindly advise which of following methods will be more appropriate

1) yum remove kernel-2.6.6-1.435.2.3/kernel-2.6.8-1.521/kernel-2.6.9-1.3_FC2
kernel-2.6.5-1.358/kernel-2.6.7-1.494.2.2/kernel-2.6.9-1.6_FC2

OR

2) rpm -e kernel-2.6.6-1.435.2.3/kernel-2.6.8-1.521/kernel-2.6.9-1.3_FC2
kernel-2.6.5-1.358/kernel-2.6.7-1.494.2.2/kernel-2.6.9-1.6_FC2

TIA

B.R.

I'd reccomend rpm -e (as root, you know).

Hi linuxgeekery,

Tks for your advice.

I upgraded the kernel by running "yum update". For such a reason I started seeking advice.
