Re: [opensuse] lack of space on /boot for new kernel
Could you move boot into root? Or could you move boot to some other
larger unused partition? You could do this from a live CD/DVD/usb-stick
and reconfigure grub2.

There are also live-disks with non-destructive re-partitioning tools such
as gpartd which is part of my openSUSE system (not sure if it's on the live
DVD system).

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.
