I normally fire up synaptic (synaptic package manager) and do a search
in the 'installed' section for 'linux-' and then remove what i don't
want. You could also search by version numbers. Make sure to pull out
the 'headers' and 'image' type packages - possibly 'image-extra' for
that version too. There are of course other ways of going about it. Just
as an added reminder: You can always check what version you're running
with the 'uname -a' command, or use'sudo update-grub2' to see a list of
all the installed kernel versions.
