1. Remove unused kernels

    Removes all but current kernel and headers for freeing up disk space. This is a note for internal use and tested for Ubuntu Precise. Use at your own risk :)

    dpkg-query -f '${Package}\n' -W |  egrep 'linux-(headers|image)-[[:digit:]].*(|-generic)' | grep -v $(uname -r | sed 's/-generic//') | sudo xargs apt-get -q -q -yy --purge remove


    1. List all packages.
    2. Find only linux-image and linux-header packages with version number, not the two main meta packages.
    3. Remove the linux-image and linux-header for running kernel from the list.
    4. Purge all listed packages from system without asking any questions.

  2. Vagrant with OpenStack

    If you want to use Vagrant with OpenStack, you need to prepare Vagrant with installing the vagrant-openstack-plugin. I had some problems installing it directly through vagrant plugin install. I had to clone it from Github and install it manually.

    One time configuration

    Install OpenStack plugin in Vagrant

    sudo apt-get install ruby1.9.1 git virtualbox
    cd /tmp
    # At writing moment the latest version of Vagrant is the following version.
    wget https://dl.bintray.com/mitchellh/vagrant/vagrant_1.7.2_x86_64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i vagrant_1.7.2_x86_64.deb
    git clone https://github.com/cloudbau/vagrant-openstack-plugin
    cd vagrant-openstack-plugin
    gem build vagrant-openstack-plugin.gemspec
    vagrant plugin install vagrant-openstack-plugin-*.gem

    Add a dummy box to Vagrant thats needed by the plugin.
