I wonder all the time what exactly could be meant by 'do not work'
(but I have already deleted the original message, so I can't ask the
author). Without this and a copy of fstab and what symlinks already
exist in the filesystem (ie is /usr/doc or /usr/share/doc already a
symlink to some place) it is very hard to guess what really could go
wrong at all (except something unsupported:).
