It's not a question of following, but of standard/popular (and consequently, well tested) behavior. Though, I don't know how these specific relative symlinks can break things :-) Flash setup makes sense, but would changing these symlinks really help? I mean if you have not /proc/kcore, but /some/path/proc/kcore then apps using /proc/kcore would be broken. Maybe it is more simple to create symlinks /dev -> /some/path/dev and /proc -> /some/path/proc ? Then _all_ apps (not only using /some/path/dev) would work. -- Vasiliy
