2.7.6 De-installing an old kernel package

The kernel-image-NNN.prerm script checks to see whether the kernel you are currently running is the same as the kernel you are trying to de-install. Therefore you can safely remove unwanted kernel image packages using this command:

     # dpkg --purge --force-remove-essential kernel-image-NNN

(Replace NNN with your kernel version and revision number, of course.)
