The grub menu has the following choices:
Fedora-29 (from Oct. 10?)
Fedora-29 (from Oct, 03?)
remove elder kernels and elder modules:
rpm -qa | grep kernel-core
sudo dnf remove <mark with mouse and copy-paste from output of the last command: all
and ONLY the kernels elder then 5.2.18-200.fc30>
means all F29 and maybe elder F30 kernels (for F30 carefully read the version numbers)
if unsure leave F30 kernels, they will removed automatically when newer kernels gets
installed via upgrade.
ever, carefully read what dnf wants to remove !
usually it is (on a box WITHOUT nvidia !):
sudo dnf remove kernel-devel < for the kernel-versions you removed in step 2.>
kernel-devel is needed to compile your kmod-nvidia.
if unsure leave for F30.
to fix grub entries after removing kernels:
[ -d /sys/firmware/efi/efivars ] && sudo grub2-mkconfig -o
/boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg || sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
- last line is ONE line ([ ... .cfg] -
rpm -qa | grep kmod-nvidia
sudo dnf remove <mark with mouse and copy-paste from output of the last command (step
4.): all kmod versions with same versions of kernels you removed in step 2.>
carefully read what dnf wants to remove !
don't remove the nvidia package, only kmod-nvidia !
if unsure leave all F30 kmod-nvidia !
kmod-nvidia are automatically compiled for the running kernel and gets installed.
kmod packages are kept on your box under
/usr or /var
- I don't know exactly, cause I don't run nvdia here (only VBOX), so maybe I'm
e.g. find /usr -iname '*kmod-nvidia*' will find the directory
I guess there are a lot of elder kmod's in...
packages clean up
as mentioned do a research !
one research could be:
for each package in your list you provided on "Montag, 14 Oktober"
find out if a package for F30 is installed beside elder one's:
rpm -qa | grep <package-name>
if a package is installed for F30 and you got elder one e.g. for F29 do
sudo dnf remove <elder package>
carefully read what dnf want's to remove !
AND as mentioned you want get that much space from the above cleanage !
I for myself would do an fresh and clean install.
at least if bugs turn up during running that old box and the need to debug them.
the question then is:
what do I currently/really debug: F30 bugs or bugs somehow reaching down to F18
I would like to be on a save(r) side with a clean box, so 5 upgrades okay, but ~12 ?
sure, it needs more work !
but all the work and hours you put in for the cleanage and stuff is more then ~1h
plus some (depends on your setup) hours reinstalling additional packages and
thinks about it !
I got somewhat overwhelmed and lost in the rest of the post.
please take this one step at a time.
