I am compiling and installing the linux kernel. When I do
make modules_install, I realize it has two links under the modules directory:
build linked to where I output the compile things and
source linked to where the kernel source is.
I'd like to know what are the two links doing? I copy the modules to another computer where does not have the directories
source linked to. It works fine. Can I just remove these two links?
Those symbolic links are relevant only as far as you compile 3rd party kernel drivers - typically make scripts rely on paths like
If you don't intend to do this, they can be safely removed.
