REMOVE OLD KERNELS

I tend to be on #ubuntu to help others. Today, an interesting question
popped up, how do I clean the old linux images and headers?

Each linux image / header has its own dir in /usr/src/

Let's start, uname -a ... do NOT remove this image

Let's do a sudo apt-get update ... make sure it is clean

If, for some reason, you get errors, try sudo apt-get -f install (fix broken)

Let's get a list of all the images, dpkg -l | grep linux-image

New Installfest, this one is in Paradise Valley

Located at Paradise Valley Community College (in building E near the three pillars). Parking on the east side of the campus is best & enter on the east side of the building. Look for the area called "Computer Commons" near the center corridor on the left. Enter and make your way towards the room against the wall on the far right labeled E146. See the link below for the campus map.

Quick Tip

12.10 orginally shipped with Nautilus 3.2 however I have found this somewhat buggy. I used this article to update Nautilus to 3.6. A small note, the odd number realeases like 3.5 are considered unstable so my advice would be to keep a even number release for the most compatability. Since the upgrade. Nautilus hasn't crashed. I have a 12.10 64 bit. I will leave the link for those who wish to look into it
