Re: Removing old kernels


Man..... Just spent 5 minutes replying to a question and you closed it tricky..... I've been out drinking all night and am in the kind of mood where that kinda aggitated me. Ahhhh.... Alcohol and adversity....... I understand about cross-posting, but this reply WILL NOT GO TO WASTE!!!!!!!!! So help me god!!!!!! He doesn't list a distro (which I mention right away) so I don't know where the other post is........

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Go to the "user cp" button up top and add your distro to your profile...

<--------------

Not that it really matters too much on a question like this.... How did you install the new kernel? Did you do a "make install"? Not that that really matters all that much either....

Go to:

/lib/modules

Delete the folder that coresponds to your old kernel...

Go to:

/boot

Delete anything that coresponds to your old kernel.....

I always do a:

Make bzImage modules modules_install

That way, Once it's done compiling, I go into /boot and delete EVERYTHING except for my "grub" folder. Then I copy my:

/usr/src/<uname- r>/System.map
/usr/src/<uname -r>/vmlinux
/usr/src/<uname -r>/arch/<your machine architecture, usually "i386"/boot/bzImage

to my /boot folder. There should really only be 3 files in /boot. Theres no "registry" or "c:/program files/common files" or "c:/windows/system32" entries in linux. Everything is where is should be. In one or two places...

So why didn't you just post it in his other thread as he double posted? I'm closing this one as most will see it and just be confused. I'd suggest to just copy and paste your response in the other thread the member started.

Regards.
