Re: [Solved] Boot partition is full

That script is available at viewtopic.php?f=213&t=250801 However it also does some additional clean-up tasks and there appears to be a bug with it. What I provided here just cleared-out old and unused kernels. You should do that when you're sure a kernel upgrade is OK and not let them pile-up :wink...

And boot folder now shows only latest kernel sans junk.

Re: Boot partition is full

I will try that and will post back here as being solved, should that be the case. I'll save this gem as a file somewhere for possible future use too. Thank you very much. o.t.: I smile at your animated bug gif. I e-mailed it to a friend as inline attach a year or so ago and never heard back from her...

From there, run the command:

Code: Select all

sudo grub-install /dev/sda
That will put the Mint you are running in control of the Grub menu, and the other Mint can safely be deleted.
Thanks a lot for sharing your expertise bro! :D

A simple mount check before starting rsync works fine but i there is a more elegant way then i'm happy to try it.
o.t.: bleach bit is in the mint software manager.

Re: Disk nearly full but its not really

Without seeming to be brash, have you tried bleach bit? It has two aspects - as root, and as general. I ran up against a 'no room, lack of space' several years ago problem, which I eventually solved with autoclean, autoremove, from terminal. It freed up over 2 gigs in root. Since then I run bb often...

Re: formatting my hd.

thanks. The os I need to keep is the secondary (b0ttom) choice on screen prompt. And the disc usage screen pic is severely confusing to me. i.e. I don,t want to be wiping the wrong boot sector.
Plus, Gparted is greek to me. How do I find that? I have limited command usage for terminal. Loving Mint!

[solved] formatting my hd.

Hello Can someone please tell me the format command from terminal window?! I bought a GATEWAY laptop.... (big pause here while everyone laughs heartily) and the fellow repairman, who met with little success in resurrecting my e-machine AMD laptop installed my Mint (Serena) os alongside Mint Cinnamon...
