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