Abstract: We study differentiable actions of a Lie group on a manifold with boundary that are transitive on the interior. Under an algebraic condition, there are infinitely many actions that are topologically, but not differentiably conjugate to a given one. This result applies in particular to the differentiable compactifications of non-compact rank one symmetric spaces, which we classify.
