Cleanup Ubuntu /boot directory

use the ‘df’ command to confirm that boot is full
cd /boot
ls -la //to see the files

You will notice a lot of files that seem to have old versions. It’s safe to remove all but the most recent of these files.

Capture
sudo rm *.0-23-* //to remove the version numbers that are unnecessary
repeat the process until you only have one latest version left. If you delete the latest version you will seriously mess up your system so be careful.

a final ‘df’ will confirm that you have freed enough space

The Simple Way to Mount a Network Drive on Lubuntu – Ubuntu – Debian

There are lots of answers out there for this problem and they are all absurdly complicated. Here’s the easy way to do it and it takes about 2 minutes.

If you don’t have cifs installed then you’ll need to install the utils package. It’s not installed by default with lubuntu. The command is “sudo apt-get install cifs-utils

Create a director to map this folder to in your media folder “sudo mkdir /media/{your folder name}

Then you need to edit your fstab file. “sudo leafpad /etc/fstab

To the end of the file add the following line; remember to replace the sections in brackets with your information
//{your drive IP address}/{any sub folders you want} /media/{your folder name} cifs username={drive_username},password={drive_password}

To test if it’s working type “sudo mount -a” if you did it wrong this will give you some useful error messages. Unfortunately cifs only supports IP addresses currently so you’re stuck with that. It’s generally a good idea to give things like a network drive a static IP address.

Earlier today I installed some updates and ended up having a problem with my mount. I had to add a version flag to the end of my fstab line to get it to work. vers=1.0 I tried vers=2.0 and vers=3.0 which did not work for me.
//192.168.1.1/volume /media/nas cifs username=****,password=****,vers=1.0
