    The more that I look at this, the more I think that my /boot partition is full. I had to manually partition it when I first created this server.

    Code:
    [email protected]:/home/adminpc# cd /boot
    [email protected]:/boot# ls -a
    .                             lost+found
    ..                            memtest86+.bin
    abi-3.13.0-24-generic         memtest86+.elf
    abi-3.13.0-27-generic         memtest86+_multiboot.bin

    config-3.14.0-031400-generic  vmlinuz-3.13.0-24-generic
    grub                          vmlinuz-3.13.0-27-generic
    initrd.img-3.13.0-24-generic  vmlinuz-3.14.0-031400-generic
    initrd.img-3.13.0-27-generic
    [email protected]:/boot# 
    
    How can I empty it out?

    Hi all,

    Well, I gave up and pulled out my gparted cd and resized my partitions and increased my /boot partition. The kernel installed now. I seem to be getting other "sil" errors. But oh well.
