NAME
       purge-old-kernels - remove old kernel and header packages from the system

SYNOPSIS
       purge-old-kernels [--keep N] [*]

DESCRIPTION
       This  program  will  remove  old  kernel and header packages from the system, freeing disk
       space.  It will never remove the currently running kernel.  By default, it  will  keep  at
       least  the latest 2 kernels, but the user can override that value using the --keep parameā€
       ter.  Any additional parameters will be passed directly to apt-get(8).

       This program requires administrative access.

EXAMPLE
       sudo purge-old-kernels --keep 3 -qy

SEE ALSO
       apt-get(8)
