This patch allow you to remove old kernels and associated modules
directory from the system.You can do it at once with the -r flag
and interactively with the -i flag.

Hi Bhaskar,

I think that you are getting a lot closer with this patch, but
there are still a few issues.  And of course, it's not up to me
whether the patch is applied.

See below.

In those 3 printf's, drop the ending space before the \n.

Drop the %s - it's not needed.

Drop the %s here also.

There is still a small problem here: if I enter a kernel_version and then
remove_old_kernel() is called, and then I enter "" for modules_version,
the script exits without that printf line.  I guess that it is possible
that someone only wants to remove the kernel_version files and not the modules.

Perhaps the thing to do is just make the prompts and calls and printf totally
separate and repeated for kernel_version and modules_version.  Do you see
what I mean?  or do you have other ideas about this?

Drop the space before the \n.

Same comment as before: after applying this patch, the "new" scripts/prune-kernel file
still contains the previous script's for-loop at the end of the "new" script.

Hi Randy,

Thank you for the review. My understanding below...kindly glean on it..

I beg to differ. I think keep around old modules only gobbles up the
space(I know it's aplenty these day...but I came from...)..anyway I
thought it would be good to get rid of these stale stuff at once.

Okay, I can understand. I could have done that...but thought instead
show it at once . But again, I will take suggestion and put separate
print statement for kernel removal and modules removal.

I am bemused and confused like hell Randy about this. This probably lack
of understanding about git ...not sure though...

In ,wild dream, can I implement a "real new file" and forget about this
whole chapter of trailing.??

Upfront apologies to Bruce...it seems I am getting defeated by my
shortcoming ...heck..
