Recently, mergemaster on ia64 offers this after installworld:
*** The installed file /boot has the type "symbolic link"
but the new version has the type "directory"
How would you like to handle this?
Use 'r' to remove /boot
You will be able to install it as a "directory"
Use 'i' to ignore this
How to proceed? [i]
I think it didn't ask this question before.
Is this just a generic, non ia64 specific, question?
/boot on ia64 must be a symbolic link, right?
