/boot is auto mounted by the grub ebuild using mount-boot.eclass.

Hi Grant,

if you upgrade grub via emerge, /boot should be mounted. As stage1, stage2 etc.
will be upgraded in /boot/grub and also in /lib/grub/i386-pc. You should also
check if /etc/mtab is available, because grub-install require this file to
determine your partition structure.


Hope I could help you,

acm.

If /boot is not mounted by default, then "yes". The "menu.lst"
and "grub.conf" files live in /boot/grub and these are updated
when grub is upgraded, although menu.lst is usually a symlink
to grub.conf.

If you're upgrading grub through the emerge process, then /boot
will be mounted for you, IIRC.

Which should not happen at all. NOTHING should EVER mount or unmount something
on a users system w/o being explicitely allowed to do so. People unmount (or
mount ro) /boot for a reason and no package manager should change that behind
the users back!

See this bug: http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=223311

Bye...
