Hello. I have a question to ask you regarding my Linux Ubuntu v.11.04 64-bit operating system.
A couple of days ago from the date of this posting, I installed from a disc copy my Linux Ubuntu v.11.04 64-bit operating system on my computer. I have installed some software programs from the Ubuntu Software Center plus have had Update Manger install some updates a couple of instances successfully. Now, today, I received another Update Manager ready to installs some more Linux Ubuntu updates into my system. I have started this process only to receive a window message stating that “Not enough free disk space”. Please see the attached screen clipping attachment below.
I JUST installed Linux Ubuntu and I cannot believe at this point I am lacking some free space on my “/boot” partition. Yes I manually created the /boot partition when I manually setup this distribution of my Linux Ubuntu. I set the /boot partition to 50 MB. I received instructions on Linux Ubuntu distribution setup from a reputable MagBook that is well written that includes the very Linux Ubuntu v.11.04 64-bit disk I have used to install this Ubuntu distribution on my hard drive. Now I am not sure exactly what to do?
1. Do I need to clean out in some manner my /boot files? If so how do I do this? Please explain in detail since I am fairly new to the Linux Ubuntu operating system.
2. I set my /boot partition to 50 MB as stated by that MagBook on Linux Ubuntu setup procedures. Is this too small a space to setup (50 MB) or should it be MUCH GREATER for the /boot partition? How do I increase the size if you suggest I do now that I have the on my physical hard disk drive the /boot partition that is literally defined and 'wedged' with no space for expansion since it at the front of the hard drive and there is my /swap partition behind it? Please explain what I need to do? Is there a way to STILL EXPAND the /boot partition or not? Please explain the steps necessary to do this.
3. Are there any other solutions to my issue you can recommend or suggest? Please explain.
