    hello,

    i found that the space of / is growth by update from kernel.
    from the WHM cpanel on the service status the space / is 82%

    in the folder /lib/modules there are:
    2.6.9-78.0.13.EL/
    2.6.9-78.0.13.ELhugemem/
    2.6.9-78.0.13.ELsmp/
    2.6.9-78.0.17.EL/
    2.6.9-78.0.17.ELhugemem/
    2.6.9-78.0.17.ELsmp/
    2.6.9-78.0.1.EL/
    2.6.9-78.0.1.ELhugemem/
    2.6.9-78.0.1.ELsmp/
    2.6.9-78.0.22.EL/
    2.6.9-78.0.22.ELhugemem/
    2.6.9-78.0.22.ELsmp/
    2.6.9-89.0.7.EL/
    2.6.9-89.0.7.ELhugemem/
    2.6.9-89.0.7.ELsmp/
    kabi-4.0-0smp/

    when i check the kernel that i use
    root@pempek [/lib/modules]# uname -r
    2.6.9-89.0.7.ELsmp

    i want to ask it is possible to remove the old kernel?

    need your advice

    thanks

    Hi,

    I saw that "yum erase <some-kernel>" does not remove the correspondent
    /lib/modules/... entry. Therefore I had a lot of stuff (from Centos 4)
    in this directory. How can I achieve that "yum erase <some kernel>"
    removes /lib/modules/<some kernel> too? Or, are they needed for the future?

    Regards
