I'm using syslinux for my bootloader. I'm using BIOS, not UEFI, on a 32-bit system. After updating syslinux 5.10-3 -> 6.01-1 the modules' symlinks in /boot/syslinux didn't get updated and still point to /usr/lib/syslinux/ instead of to /usr/lib/syslinux/bios e.g. menu.c32 -> /usr/lib/syslinux/menu.c32 which prevents the syslinux menu from appearing on boot (modules not found). Running '# /usr/bin/syslinux-install_update -i -a -m' doesn't help.
Should I remove all the symlinks from /boot/syslinux and only copy the needed files back? I didn't install syslinux manually so i don't know why should I have to do this. Did I miss / misunderstand something?
The install script needs an update. Just remove the .c32 and ln -s /usr/lib/syslinux/bios/*.c32 .
And if you have a custom syslinux.cfg, you need to restore than from syslinux.cfg.pacsave.
So many ways to break your boot ....
