make symlink.deb

hello Everyone!

Hope you are all linuxing well.

Ok, here's my problem. When I update my linux kernel in KDE, when I save it, it tells me to 'make symlink.deb'. What does this mean and what should I do?

Thank's y'all!

My guess is that you need to open a terminal, cd to the kernel source directory, and type:
make symlinks.deb
Make is a utility for automating tasks. It's usually used to help compile large programs. By executing the command above, the system will likely be adjusting or creating symbolic links to files based on the changes you made to your kernel configuration.
