The best place to ask programming/development questions, imo. UPDATE: stackoverflow is the *worst* place to *ask* questions (if your first question/comment doesn't get any up-rating/response, then u can't ask anymore questions--ridiculously unrealistic), but a great reference for finding answers.

ubuntu - low disk space the volume boot has only X MB disk space remaining

i started getting warning popups telling me i only had 10 MB left in my /boot partition:
low disk space the volume boot has only 10 MB disk space remaining

so i first checked to see what was in my /boot folder:
ls -la /boot


which gave this output:

so i could see that the only kernel i wanted to retain was 3.8.0-33-generic, so i removed all the old kernels like this:
sudo apt-get purge linux-image-3.8.0-{19,21,22,29,30,31,32}-generic

which gave this output:
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  linux-image-3.8.0-19-generic* linux-image-3.8.0-21-generic* linux-image-3.8.0-22-generic* linux-image-3.8.0-29-generic* linux-image-3.8.0-30-generic* linux-image-3.8.0-31-generic*
  linux-image-3.8.0-32-generic* linux-image-extra-3.8.0-19-generic* linux-image-extra-3.8.0-21-generic* linux-image-extra-3.8.0-22-generic* linux-image-extra-3.8.0-29-generic*
