Hi

I am using Ubuntu and grub.

I set up a 50meg partition but its nearly full. The biggest are 4 files called "initrd.img-2.6.12-9-386" at 5 to 6 meg each.

Can i delete all but the 2 most recent ones? (Will it let me delete them?)

thanks

Look at the Grub config and note the names of the old kernels you no longer use. Delete those from Grub, then delete the files.

Just make sure you do it right or you'll end up with an unbootable system.

I don't know if Ubuntu has some 'nice' way of doing this. Some distros do, some don't.
