I don't want to use the 4.2.5-x kernel, I can't even boot with the proprietary Nvidia drivers. 3.16.7-24 kernel works fine.
Is it safe to remove all 4.2.5-x kernels and how to do so?

openSUSE 13.2

    You usually do that via the package manager. I don't know how on openSUSE, I know Debian.

    and when you delete them, you may also need to run update-grub to remove them from the grub menu. or your package manager will probably do that automatically as you add and remove kernel packages.

  • It is safe. More here: en.opensuse.org/SDB:Keep_multiple_kernel_versions

It is safe to delete unused kernels. But I would suggest to keep at least one kernel in case you have troubles with the newly installed kernel.
