As you know, everytime there is an update for the kernel, the new kernel is installed while the old one is not automaticaly uninstalled, after several kernel updates you will find a large list of old kernels in the start terminalgrub menu . So if we got no problem with the new installed kernel, we can just delete the old ones.

 

 

In my previous post i did show you how to uninstall older kernel in Ubuntu. Today I will show you another command to remove unused kernels:

sudo apt-get remove $(dpkg -l|egrep '^ii  linux-(im|he)'|awk '{print $2}'|grep -v `uname -r`)

 

Is done.
