Re: Fwd: kernel updates for k12.04+k14.04

thanks for that I will look into it, but at the moment I followed your
instructions about the gtk3 and changed
to default , in my Bkup k14.04 disk, and shows the tabs with listing
about site in tab, so will use this at
the moment until if find the correct answer, so again Thanks,
also do you anything about ubuntu-tweak, which I have carried over
from my k12.04 to
k14.04 as wondering if I can use the computer janitor in this to remove the old
Linux-pae, see attached?

Ray,

I think you mean this mail which indeed I didn't answer for some unknown
reason - sorry.

Yes, you can safely remove all the old -pae kernels. The current kernel
for Kubuntu 14.04 is version 3.13.0-133 (or 4.4.0-97 if you are using
the HWE version).

Re: Fwd: kernel updates for k12.04+k14.04

ray burke
Nils 21/10/2017 in  win7 with dongle,

thanks, what about thru system settings/boot-loader where on the screen is says
first line "Ubuntu" then next to it in red writing "remove old entries"
does this mean that when I click this button how many old entries,
or does it  mean it removes the current one shown?
when I  am in k14.04 i will take a screen shot of this and send to you OK

I don't know what it would do - I don't have an entry boot-loader under
systemsettings. Is that a Unity or Gnome application perhaps? But didn't
you want to use Ubuntu-tweek?

That seems like a good idea.

Nils,

I was just wondering what would it do if I just click remove old
entries as a quick easy
way to do it see attached?

If someone else is interested - this was my answer to the PM I received
earlier:

I didn't have the package kde-config-grub2 installed, that's why I
didn't know about that config option. Now I have it installed and I
tried what it would do. It would uninstall all old kernels, but first
you can unselect select which ones to remove. Then you get a list of the
packages to be removed and you have to confirm it. Finally you have to
authenticate with your password and then it starts removing the old
kernels.

So yes, you can use that option and it does what you expected.

Nils,

I know I have already sent this to your email address (Nils
Kassube<[hidden email]>)
not thru " Kubuntu user technical support
<[hidden email]>" as when I sent it this way it was
held up  cause of a moderator was to approve it cause was to large to
send with the 2 attachments, so I haven't mean to be over zealous?

Ray, I know about the mail size limit, so no problem with the extra
private mail. I just answered to the list as well because someone else
might be searching the list archive for the same question.
