I was installing gentoo 1.2 (bigger CD) at the last stage when I was going to install GRUB. Then I checked the directory /boot. to my dismay, I found so many boot directories one inside the other:

1. # ls /boot -> boot bzImage grub lost+found

2. # ls /boot/boot -> same output

3. # ls /boot/boot/boot -> still same output

ad infinitum

I am not sure what wrong. I just cd to the outer most /boot then ran "rm -r boot" but I am not sure it will fix it. :o

Asked and answered many times.

You need not (probably shouldn't) remove the boot symlink since it keeps grub syntax equivalent to that when it is mounted.

Locking thread.
