[SOLVED] Can't install linux-lts - '/boot is too full'

I installed arch yesterday. I was getting ACPI some errors on system boot and figured that they were due to using the latest arch llinux kernel and came to kmow that i need to switch to linux-lts kernel. I am currently dual booting with windows 10 and had ubuntu installed before arch.

So i went on and tried to install it but am getting error that boot is full.

pacman -S linux-lts

Re: [SOLVED] Can't install linux-lts - '/boot is too full'

Manage your /boot partition.  Not sure what you're expecting folks to tell you...

I understand that but i not not sure on what to delete/uninstall.
I think once i install the lts kernel i won't be needing the 4.12.5-1-ARCH kernel and so i can remove that and free space.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Re: [SOLVED] Can't install linux-lts - '/boot is too full'

The Microsoft boot loader is taking up a lot of space, but I guess you need that if you also dual boot with Windows.  Grub is also taking a bunch of space, maybe you could switch to a lighter boot loader than grub?  systemd-boot is what I use and it is very light but then again I don't even know if it can support Windows since I have no Windows installed.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ca … ot_loaders has some more info for you to look at.

You already have linux-lts installed, why not try to boot using that. If that works you can remove the regular kernel. You may also remove fallback images to get more space.

Thank you very much! I did just that and now my acpi errors are gone and am using the lts kernel!

Re: [SOLVED] Can't install linux-lts - '/boot is too full'

Considering that you are using grub anyway, why not set up grub to load the kernel from /boot/vmlinuz-* on your rootfs?

Then you wouldn't need to have your ESP double as your /boot partition, and /boot could be as large as you want it to be.

...

Typically, the only reason people mount their ESP to /boot is because the average UEFI boot manager is far more lightweight than the average BIOS bootloader, and can only read the kernel from the fat32 ESP. But grub is *very* powerful...
