      TL;DR
      After 1 year of normal use and updating my linux OS informed me that it has only 80MiB left on boot.

      So my linux OS basically is dead or crippled now.
      Explain this.

          >>zero relevant info on his system
          I was wondering if this is a common thing in all distros or not.

          >>zero relevant info on his system
          What do you want to know?

        I'm sorry, but there is something strangely cute about your post. Uh, anyways, you should probably check the /boot/ directory. I heard unused shit just piles up in there.

          What should I see there exactly?

          > heard unused shit just piles up in there.
          Why is the OS doing that?

        I have no fricking idea of what you did, installed, changed in settings, how legit the os was and where you downloaded it, even less what hardware you use, so...

        Works on my machine, after 3 years.

          anyway, after you're done installing gentoo,

          eclean-kernel --num 10 --destructive --ask

          Should fix it...

    Just make the partition bigger

    80MiB of free space in /boot is fine. Mine has 65MiB free. The whole partition was only 256MiB to start with for me.
    It's full because there are old initrd images from previous kernels you upgraded from. Mint's package manager *should* remove the oldest ones when it doesn't have enough space to install a new one, but I don't use moron-distro so I don't know if it actually does that.
    Are you even having a real problem, or did you just see a small number and ape out?

      >r did you just see a small number and ape out?
      The system did give me a warning.

      > The whole partition was only 256MiB to start with for me.
      Why not more?

      Surly I can give it 1GiB if I have 2 TiB ????
      And why the warning then?

      >initrd
      WTF is this?

    Just run sudo apt autoremove
    That should clean up all your old kernel images and fix this

        You can with crontab, but it's risky if you have novideo card or some other proprietary shit in the kernel space, because it will remove the older kernel with the previous abi.
