more space on /boot required

While doing a „yum update“ this message can be displayed:

Disk Requirements: At least 10MB more space needed on the /boot

That means the /boot is running out of space.

To free up there are at least two options:

Remove kernels manually

Check out your current running Kernel using

uname -a

Check the installed kernel versions with

 yum list installed | grep kernel

And remove not used kernel versions.

Use yum-utils

install yum-util

yum install yum-utils

Remove old kernel versions

package-cleanup --oldkernels --count=2

To make it persistent to only hold two versions change the conf file of yum:

vi /etc/yum.conf

OpenOffice problem window restore

If your OpenOffice crashed running Apple OSX, you might run into a problem where a dialog is asking you wether you would like to restore your old windows / documents.

When you click one of the two options, nothing happens.

You can solve the problem (make a backup of the folder before deleting it):


Quit open office (using task manager or alt+cmd+esc)
Open Terminal
cd  ~/Library/Saved Application State/org.openoffice.script.savedState
rm -rf *

That will delete all content of that folder.
