How to Delete Old Ubuntu Kernel Entries

First get the list of available kernel entires by looking at

emacs /boot/grub/grub.cfg

This is the replacement for the old /boot/grub/menu.lst file in the Ubuntu 9.10. Note that this file is not meant for editing. Read at Grub-2.

Once you have the list remove previous entries using,

sudo aptitude remove linux-image-2.6.31-15-generic

Where I’m removing the kernel 2.6.31-15 and my latest kernel is linux-image-2.6.31-17-generic .
