I dual-boot Windows and Fedora on a machine with GRUB. Whenever I update Fedora or its Linux kernel, it generates a new disk image in
/boot thus creating another boot option when loads GRUB. However, Arch Linux on another machine whenver I update the distro or its kernel, there's no change in
Forgive me if I have a flawed understanding of how this works; when the Linux kernel or distro get updated and a new boot image gets updated, wouldn't that mean previous versions of the image are essentially deprecated, shouldn't they just be deleted (hence replaced by its updated counterpart)?
Why does a new and different image generate in
/boot? Is it safe to simply delete previous versions?
