remove no longer needed Ubuntu kernels

Project description

The rmoldkernels utility removes old. no longer used, kernels from on Ubuntu systems, thus freeing up space on /boot (or /).

The currently active kernel is kept, as is the last one installed (numeric wise), normally that would be the one that becomes active on a reboot. Any ‘older’ or intermediate kernels (those that got installed after a reboot except for the last one) will be deleted.

If ran as normal user, you will be asked for a sudo password.

The commandline handed to apt-get for removal is echoed, and you do have to confirm the removal.

You can specify a number of extra kernels to keep, these are counted from the last and do include the last one if that is not the active one.

It probably works on Debian as well, but that has not been tested as of Nov. 2013.
