/boot full (of old-dkms)


I happen to have a couple of quite large old-dkms* files in my /boot directory.

Apparently they are not removed by aptitude autoclean (which I use regularly).

Can I safely remove those files manually with rm?

Or should I use another tool or command?




/boot$ ls -al | grep old
