I will document our progress here, and ask that the four students keep blogs of their own.
I first used RedHat software in 1995 with the original RHL 1.0 release in May of that year. I had been using Slackware prior to that, and RedHat quickly became my distro of choice. It remained so until the first release of Ubuntu in 2004. So this will be something of a return to my past, and I'm looking forward to seeing how much of what I remember still holds.
As a first task, I wanted to find out how to easily remove old kernels from the Fedora 23 box we setup in the lab. A quick search revealed this. It couldn't be much simpler:
- # dnf install yum-utils
- # package-cleanup --oldkernels --count=1
- # cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
- # wget http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/rpm/fedora/virtualbox.repo
- # dnf update
- # dnf install binutils gcc make patch libgomp glibc-headers glibc-devel kernel-headers kernel-devel dkms
