Re: /boot partition has no space.

Ok, no problem, this wasn't entirely unexpected due to the lack of free space. You might be able to remove those above normally now since you cleared one of them, but otherwise see if this works: sudo update-initramfs -d -k 4.4.0-127-generic sudo update-initramfs -d -k 4.4.0-111-generic sudo dpkg -...

Re: /boot partition has no space.

If it lists one as loaded, that probably means that it's the kernel that's currently in use. The command uname -r will tell you for sure. The command ls -l /vmlinuz will tell you where the current default kernel is located. Never ever try to remove the currently active kernel. All the others are fr...

Re: /boot partition has no space.

I like that approach. Just how did you go about deleting the oldest one? Is it a simple matter of aptitude delete initrd.img-4.4.0-124-generic? Is that the appropriate way to specify the target kernel? Will that take care of the vmlinuz*, abi*, config* etc files? That would be more straightforward ...

Re: /boot partition has no space.

When I installed Linux Mint 17.2, it configured /boot with only 100 Mb of space. Since each new kernel update keeps previous ones, there is no space for anything new since 4.4.0-127.. How do I go about removing stale kernels? I have installed 17.2 many times and it does not create a /boot partition...

Re: /boot partition has no space.

When I installed Linux Mint 17.2, it configured /boot with only 100 Mb of space. That's not big enough for more than one kernel. I didn't set the size. The setup gui didn't offer such a choice. But I made a mistake. It's not quite as small as I indicated. 236 Mb, not 100Mb which is still too small....

[Solved] Compiing from source when a newer version is required

I need GDAL version > 1.11.4 but the latest version in the Mint repo's newest version is 1.10.1. If I compile it from source, will that clash with anything else when it's not handled by the package manager?

checking GDAL version >= 1.11.4... no

Using Linux Mint 17.3, I wish to install an R package that requires GDAL version >= 1.11.4. My most recent update includes version 1.10.1. I noticed I can find a deb file (or at least a tgz file) of much later versions, but I'm reluctant to use a version that's not in the package management system. ...

Re: Numeric keypad configuration

Good news. I found where I did it. In the 'System settings | Input devices | Mouse | Mouse Navigation' screen, there's a setting for "Move pointer with keyboard (using the num pad)". Might save someone else from looking in the wrong place.

Just couldn't see for looking as the expression is.

Re: Confused about Bash startup files

It sounds like you're intent on doing this so I'm not one to try to talk someone out of doing what they want to do. It just seems to me like you're reinventing the wheel :? I would just suggest renaming the original ~/.profile just in case. Good luck :wink: I'm not reinventing. I've had a ~./bash_p...

Re: Confused about Bash startup files

You should already have a ~/.profile that sources ~/.bashrc and adds ~/bin to $PATH so I don't see the need for doing that :? True, but it's not reed since I also have a ~/.bash_profile. But if I renamed it to ~/.profile it should work since that file does the adding ~/bin to $PATH as well as setti...

Re: Confused about Bash startup files

I see no reason to include a 'source ~/.bash_rprofile'.

Re: boot-repair

There's something important I haven't yet grasped. If I look in /boot/grub/grub.cfg I don't see any mention of /dev/sdb, so how does grub know to boot that device? grub.cfg references the partition to boot with UUID numbers, not device designations (/dev/sda). The UUID number stays the same no matt...

Re: boot-repair

From that menu, the default is the installation on /dev/sdb which then works fine. That indicates that most of the grub configuration is OK but not in quite the right place. What I need is to make that come up at the beginning by default so I can remove the 160Gb disk. So you have Grub installed on...
