If /boot is an ext3 filesystem it's possible to free about 4 MB by converting it to an ext2 filesystem. It goes something like this:

umount /boot

tune2fs -O ^has_journal /dev/sda1<i> - where /dev/sda1 is the /boot partition</i>

Why quaid put the needs_love tag on the page

If a PreUpgrade stand alone page is needed, that can be created separately with feature content, then have this page linked. However, most features use their Features/PreUpgrade-style page as the main reference point, so there is no reason to create a PreUpgrade page.

Another method to free space: Convert /boot to ext2

If /boot is an ext3 filesystem it's possible to free about 4 MB by converting it to an ext2 filesystem. It goes something like this:

umount /boot
tune2fs -O ^has_journal /dev/sda1 - where /dev/sda1 is the /boot partition
$EDITOR /etc/fstab - change ext3 to ext2 for /boot
mount /boot
