Thread: (13.1 TW) purge kernels not working

  1. #1

    Default (13.1 TW) purge kernels not working

    All up to latest updates. On reboot, purge-kernel is not running. I now
    have 6 kernel versions now in /boot.

    When I run:

    Code:
    toshiba-lt:~ # systemctl start purge-kernels.service
    The prompt comes back right away, no message on the screen or in
    /var/log/messages.

    From /etc/zypp/zypp.conf:

    [code

    ## Comma separated list of kernel packages to keep installed in
    parallel, if the
    ## above multiversion variable is set. Packages can be specified as
    ## 2.6.32.12-0.7 - Exact version to keep
    ## latest - Keep kernel with the highest version number
    ## latest-N - Keep kernel with the Nth highest version number
    ## running - Keep the running kernel
    ## oldest - Keep kernel with the lowest version number (the GA
    kernel)
    ## oldest+N - Keep kernel with the Nth lowest version number
    ##
    ## Note: This entry is not evaluated by libzypp, but by the
    ## purge-kernels service (via /sbin/purge-kernels).
    ##
    ## Default: Do not delete any kernels if multiversion =
    provides:multiversion(kernel) is set
    multiversion.kernels = latest,latest-1,running

    Default Re: (13.1 TW) purge kernels not working

    Been manually purging kernels for a long time on Tw, just to keep it down to 3 or 4. I normally use YaST SM to do that.

    It has been reported to the opensuse mailing list earlier this month, see here: http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse/2.../msg00539.html

    That last page post references a bug number, and if you back track, you will a suggestion that the kernel names used now have been confusing the service.

    PS. surprised you missed it, since you posted a [different] thread there a couple of days later.

    A Google search showed the issue as showing up with 12.3 and questioned
    if it would be fixed for 13.1, apparently that is not the case.

    My fantastic memory has failed me regarding this. Perhaps a different

    I'm quite sure there was a brief period when automatic kernel purges worked properly on Tw. Memory fails me as to when that was, late 12.3 base or earlier part of 13.1 base before the large KDE upgrades when kernel updates were the main feature.
