Sparky Linux kernel / Re: Removing kernels

Quote from: Martin A. on March 12, 2023, 09:15:03 AM[....]  for loading kernels is not showing which ones are already installed.
  • If you want to see the installed kernels, open a terminal and type:

dpkg --list | egrep -i --color 'linux-image|linux-headers'

  • Or use, APTus AppCenter > System > Kernels > Remove Old System Kernel:
    (You will be able to see the different Kernels you have installed).

sudo apt-get remove $(dpkg -l|egrep '^ii  linux-(im|he)'|awk '{print $2}'|grep -v `uname -r`)

Installation / how to add boo/esp to flag
Last post by sawer - March 14, 2023, 05:47:30 PM
I've been trying to install sparky7 but having an issue with adding the proper flag. I think the flag should be boot/esp.  I have mount point as /boot/efi for any insight on this.
Thanks sawer

I'm Genaker. I haven't actually had that much experience with lightweight distros, I've always gone with Ubuntu or Manjaro, but Sparky has been great for the 30 minutes I've been using it.
