no space on /boot

Postby bigears » Tue May 28, 2013 0:25

Hi,

This problem has got gradually worst. At one stage I could install 3 kernels in /boot, but lately I could only install 2 kernels, but today I tried to install 3.9.3 with only 3.8.13 installed and I run out of disk space.

See below I have only 35%.

Why are there 2 initramfs files? Can I delete initramfs-dracut-3.8.0-sabayon to free up space.

Cheers

Just Do It (TM) :)

You will have to regenerate Grub's configuration file or else you will have stale entries left:

Code: Select all
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
