Resize boot partition in Ubuntu

+1 vote

Ubuntu 13.04 (Gnome) is telling me that my /boot partition on (/dev/sda1) is 96% full.

Is the best option to boot from Knoppix & resize the partition or is it safe to delete all the old kernels to free up the space? If I can safely delete the kernels, what's the best way to go about it?

You can list kernels installed by, for example:

# dpkg -l linux-image* | grep ^i

Then apt-get remove them one-by-one or use wildcards, but, in the latter case, check 'The following packages will be REMOVED' list carefully before accepting 'Do you want to continue [Y/n]'!!!

I know this is an easy one, but I can't seem to find the current correct way to do it. I've got a TB HDD that I need to change the LABEL on. Currently it's 'LIVE' (it's an old production drive) and I really want to just remove the label altogether and mount it with the UUID of the drive.

What's the best and most current way to do it? I was thinking e2label will do it, but it's been so long since I've done it, I'm playing it safe.

Just installed Ubuntu 12.10 as guest in virtualbox. I find that after I shutdown the VM and start it later, the display does not resize to the window frame that I had set for it. Please let me know any pointers on how the issue can be fixed.

I am not quite sure this can be done. I have a dual boot server with xp and ubuntu - each on their own drive. is there any way to use virtual box or something similar to run the xp OS a guest to ubuntu - that is already installed on the other physical drive than ubuntu is installed?

I want to get rid of mac os x but it seem the mac os firmware are not compatible with current linux? So I have to keep the mac os partition and mac os.
Is there anyone who managed to remove mac os x entirely and will 16.04 be able to do this?

I installed the NUT monitor from the Ubunut Software Center. The Ubuntu Software Center lists version 2.6.4-2.3ubuntu2 but when I look at the NUT Monitor ABOUT the program has version 1.3!

I am replacing an old computer running OS/2 as a file and print server for my home LAN with a new computer running Ubuntu. I moved the UPS serial connection from the old computer to the new one but am having problems getting UPS logging to work. When I boot the computer UPSLOG starts but is not finding the UPS so the log is full of useless data. How do I find which file starts the UPSLOG?

As a side problem it appears that the UPSLOG does not operate as the documentation describes. I added a file for the logrotate program which does rotate the log but other than that does not appear to work. When the logrotate program runs the logger stops when it gets the "kill -HUP" signal instead of continuing with the new log file.

I have read the readme file but there is not much about installation. I have looked at some documentation on the internet trying to get this installed but the documentation does not match the configuration files I have on my system. Anyone know where I can find documentation that matches the version I have?
