Note the double space: "...^ii␣␣linux-image-2..."
Like 5813, but fixes two bugs: This leaves the meta-packages 'linux-headers-generic' and 'linux-image-generic' alone so that automatic upgrades work correctly in the future. Kernels newer than the currently running one are left alone (this can happen if you didn't reboot after installing a new kernel).
I'm bummed that this took 228 characters. I'd like to see a simpler version.
There is 1 alternative - vote for the best!
This should do the same thing and is about 70 chars shorter.
This will remove all installed kernels on your debian based install, except the one you're currently using.
Remove old kernels (*-generic and *-generic-pae) via apt-get on debian/ubuntu based systems. Tested on ubuntu 10.04 - 12.04.
A little aptitude magic. Note: this will remove images AND headers. If you just want to remove images: aptitude remove ?and(~i~nlinux-im ?not(~n`uname -r`))
I used this in zsh without any problems. I'm not sure how other shells will interpret some of the special characters used in the aptitude search terms. Use -s to simulate.
If you can do better, submit your command here.
