dracut fails to remove older kernels when using the YaST upgrade option
Last modified: 2022-09-29 06:53:47 UTC
I upgraded with the latest .iso today
and dracut failed to remove the 5.19.1 and 5.19.0 kernel when i used the upgrade option in my Virtualbox VM but it worked to boot with kernel 5.19.2 but would be nice if the step to remove older unused kernels would work
Fixed with the 0823 iso *closing*
Had this happen again today with the 0926 ISO so opening again
For now nothing for yast. Reassining
AFAIK, this feature was moved to the purge-kernels-service package. Reassigning.
purge-kernels service simply runs
if a file exists.
Description=Purge old kernels
ExecStart=/usr/bin/zypper -n purge-kernels
ExecStartPost=/bin/rm -f /boot/do_purge_kernels
What is the status of the service?
Do you have the file after doing the upgrade?
does running zypper purge-kernels remove the kernels?
