Thread: YAST Online Update error message [SOLVED]

    Default YAST Online Update error message [SOLVED]

    Hi Everyone,

    It would be great if I could have some help with my updates. I have just realised that my computer has not been updating because of a pipelight repo I had. I have deleted it. I have then gone to YAST Online update and accepted the patches. I have accepted the flash player licence. On patch download and installation I get this message
    Code:
     Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed:     installing package kernel-desktop-3.11.10-21.1.i686 needs 12MB on the /boot filesystem
    My /boot partition is 101 MB

    I am desperately trying to remember how to see how much of my partitions are in use.

    That's much too small for keeping more than one kernel (as enabled by default) and the associated initrds.

    How many kernels do you have installed at the moment?
    Code:
    ls /boot
    If it's more than one, uninstall the oldest one manually before trying to install the updates again.
    You can remove specific versions in YaST->Software Management when you click on "Versions" below the package list.

    Right got there now.
    Code:
    df -h
    Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda7        15G  6.2G  7.8G  45% /
    devtmpfs        1.6G   16K  1.6G   1% /dev
    tmpfs           1.6G   88K  1.6G   1% /dev/shm
    tmpfs           1.6G  4.9M  1.6G   1% /run
    tmpfs           1.6G     0  1.6G   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
    tmpfs           1.6G  4.9M  1.6G   1% /var/lock
    tmpfs           1.6G  4.9M  1.6G   1% /var/run
    /dev/sda6        94M   83M  4.8M  95% /boot
    /dev/sda8       246G   37G  209G  15% /home
    /dev/sda9       170G   80G   82G  50% /mydisk
    So the problem appears to be that my /boot partition doesn't have enough space.

    Sorry everyone was in this place in June. Ignore my question I know what to do.
