Question make symlinks


I am in the middle of building my first LFS system. So far, I have had to compile twice. Found out that my .bash_profile didn't take and had to redo it. That is the fun of it ain't it?

So, the question. Below is what I entered when compiling Linux-2.4.22 headers.

[lfs@sys2 linux-2.4.22]$ make symlinks
rm -f include/asm
( cd include ; ln -sf asm-i386 asm)
Is that OK? Or did I do something wrong earlier. I am pretty sure I followed the book exactly. I reread each command before hitting enter to verify it was entered correctly. The book version I am using is LFS-BOOK-5.0.

Thanks for the help.

Looks OK to me. I don't see the word "error" anywhere. You'll live.
