[opensuse] lack of space on /boot for new kernel
In doing a regular "zypper up" there is a new kernal update for 12.3 64 bit to be installed (kernel-desktop-3.7.10-1.24.1). The installation failed with the message

(with --nodeps --force) Error: Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: installing package kernel-desktop-3.7.10-1.24.1.x86_64 needs 8MB on the /boot filesystem

Is there a file on the /boot filesystem which I can move or delete to conveniently make room (without having to repartition)? The large files currently are the 3.7.10-1.16 initrd, System.map, vmlinuz, and config. Also symvers-3.7.10-1.16-desktop.gz and vmlinux-3.7.10-1.16-desktop.gz. I can give a complete list if that will help. I have not been keeping copies of the old kernels. Just wondering whether there is an easy way to get the new kernel installed.

Thanks.
