The team officially launched the Linux Mint 19.1 “Tessa” today. The version released today has three flavour versions, namely Cinnamon, MATE and Xfce. The team has detailed the many features introduced in the new version in the previous official blog post, but new features have been introduced in the release today – allowing users to clean up the old Linux kernel and avoid booting the Linux Mint 19 boot sector.
This adjustment in Linux Mint 19 allows users to install kernel updates along with other patches. Previously, after the user installed the new kernel, the old kernel will continue to exist unless the user enters the Update Manager and manually deletes them one by one. This causes the user to receive a notification that the boot sector is full after installing the new kernel. Now, there is a button in the kernel manager that “remove old kernels”, which is convenient for the user to select the old kernel to be deleted and delete it in batches.
