The package builds fine and the focus of our attention should only be on %post. BTW I separated the scriptlet as Source1: check-n-symlink.sh on the SOURCE folder and that's the scriptlet that should do those items listed above.
I'm sure this is a simple exercise for some of our gurus and I am pretty sure it would also benefit us learning so much on our time spent here at PCLinuxOS.
