Unfortunately, installation of a new kernel needs 7+ MB free in
/boot. It is entirely possible that with a 15 MB partition, any
attempt to install a newer kernel version will fail. I do install
new kernels, and have found a partition size of 20 MB for /boot to
be a "squeaker", even when I made sure to beforehand 'remove' all
kernel versions from the system except for the one that is running.
