The best answers to the question “How can I symlink a file in Linux? [closed]” in the category Dev.
I want to make a symbolic link in Linux. I have written this Bash command where the first path is the folder I want link into and the second path is the compiled source.
ln -s '+basebuild+'/IpDome-kernel/kernel /home/build/sandbox/gen2/basebuild/IpDome-kernel/kernal
Is this correct?
ln -s TARGET LINK_NAME
-s makes it symbolic.
To create a new symlink (will fail if symlink exists already):
ln -s /path/to/file /path/to/symlink
To create or update a symlink:
ln -sf /path/to/file /path/to/symlink
ln -s target linkName
You can have a look at the man page here:
ln -s EXISTING_FILE_OR_DIRECTORY SYMLINK_NAME
