Im using AIDE instrusion detection system on a Debian virtual server and the AIDE report
always complains about two dead symlinks. I have removed one that was
/usr/bin/X11 -> ../X11R6/bin as I don't have X11 on the system.
The other dead symlink is in /dev and its ram -> ram1
There is no ram1 file.
Can I del this symlink /dev/ram or might there be a problem.
Surely if the symlink is dead then it can't be being used?
That would then allow me to always check that the AIDE report should contain
