Re: [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,, 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.


what's the size of /boot ? this is a separate partition I guess, otherwise you are running out of space in the root filesystem as well..

what does tune2fs -l /dev/partion/that/contains/boot returns ?
