My system appears to be running tip top - I have been using fairly intensive programs (Ardour, Audacity and GIMP) without issue. However, in the past few weeks when I have run
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
I have have noticed some oddities in the output...only during certain upgrades...
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-4.13.0-26-generic
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-4.4.0-36-generic

Found memtest86+ image: /boot/memtest86+.bin
I am certain this is due to my kernel upgrade when the Spectre/Meltdown security issues went public. I'm suspecting I have to "purge or remove" the old Kernal or something along those lines...
Or is this on the converse where it may be helpful to have this "backup" Kernal in case of an issue? I haven't run different Kernals before so I don't have much experience. Again, my system appears to be running just fine.
Thank you in advance, Community!
