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
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?
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.
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

/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.
