    Default Disk /boot at 86%

    I read in a post on the forums somewhere to set the partitions up with /boot at 100MB. I did this but now I'm getting emails sent to my admin account every 10 minutes saying:

    May 31 23:20:00 mx1 zimbramon[3398]: 3398:err: Disk warning: mx1.mail.com: /boot on device /dev/vda1 at 86%
    Release 7.1.2_GA_3268.UBUNTU10_64 UBUNTU10_64 FOSS edition.

    You should have either set the boot partition larger than 100MB or remove some of the rubbish in that partition. This is your server and you're the admin, set it up as you wish.

    Thanks. Unfortunately, I am not experienced with installing Zimbra and I was looking for a good suggested setup. On the forums I found this setup and it was quite a long thread and nobody said not to do this breakdown so I copied it.

    When you say get rid of some of the rubbish on that partition. Could you advise what is safe to get rid of please?

    Here are the contents:

    That depends on how many version of the kernel you want to keep, use your package manager to remove everything except the current working kernel (if that's your choice) or keep the current and one older one.
