I have an encrypted (LUKSv2) LVM setup with a separate unencrypted /boot/ partition. When I install a new kenrel in the system, the following symlinks are created in the root directory (/): # ls -al / ... lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 29 2020-02-14 17:22:18 initrd.img -> boot/initrd.img-5.4.0-4-amd64 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 27 2020-02-24 00:37:53 initrd.img.old -> boot/initrd.img-5.5.4-amd64 ... lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 26 2020-02-14 17:22:18 vmlinuz -> boot/vmlinuz-5.4.0-4-amd64 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 2020-02-24 00:37:53 vmlinuz.old -> boot/vmlinuz-5.5.4-amd64 So I have a question here: what's the purpose of the links? Also, I'm trying to configure refind EFI boot manager, and basically I don't want to change its config file with each kernel update (the numbers in the file names change). Wouldn't be better to create the links under /boot/ dir instead (or in addition to the already existing ones, if they serve any purpose)?
