I have complined the 3.12 kernel on my ubuntu.

However at /lib/modules/3.12.0-works there is a folder called build and source and it is a symlink to /home/jon/Downloads/linux-3.12.

I havn't delete the kernel source yet from my download folder .

But isn't the build and source folder symlink suppose to point at /usr/src/linux-headers-3.12.0-works ?

In future how can I avoid this error?
