Full /boot partition after latest update


Hey folks, during my latest ZYPPER UP this morning I ran out of space on my /boot partition. It looks like I have several versions of the Gnome desktop hosted in this location - does anyone have a suggestion to the steps for removing the old versions?

I'm running:

Kernel Linux 3.7.10-1.16-desktop
GNOME 3.6.2

Thanks!
Bill

there are three versions of kernel, 11, 16 and 24; symlinks point to version 24, but you are running the 16, i could delete all 11 files, as you don't use it (except safe-mode or similar)

rm initrd-3.7.10-1.11-desktop symtypes-3.7.10-1.11-*.gz symvers-3.7.10-1.11-desktop.gz sysctl.conf-3.7.10-1.11-desktop System.map-3.7.10-1.11-desktop vmlinux-3.7.10-1.11-desktop.gz vmlinuz-3.7.10-1.11-desktop

Dave, thanks much - I thought it would be more difficult

I removed the 1.11 files and finished the ZYPPER UP, then restarted and the system loaded normally. Much appreciated!
