quick question abt sym links


Hi, if I boot up and mount system on /mnt/tmp and made a sym link in the library by
ln -s /mnt/tmp/lib/lib-2.0.14 /mnt/tmp/lib/lib.so.6
does the symlink stays the next time it boots to
/lib/lib-2.0.14 /lib/lib.so.6?
Thanks,
Ted

the symlink will stay as long as you not create the link into the "tmp" which is created by system because IMO the /mnt/tmp is created by you

but i in doubt lib.so.6 is a file and lib-2.0.14 is a folder, what is actually point here
linking folder to file, for this correct me if iam wrong
