I think I found a little problem with the instructions in the book here.
Ch 6.52. Psmisc-22.10
ln -sv killall /bin/pidof
root:/sources/psmisc-22.10# ln -sv killall /bin/pidof
`/bin/pidof' -> `killall'
root:/sources/psmisc-22.10# ls -l /bin/killall
ls: cannot access /bin/killall: No such file or directory
root:/sources/psmisc-22.10# file /bin/pidof
/bin/pidof: broken symbolic link to `killall'
The same problem is in the current development version of the book also.
To address the issue, I moved /usr/bin/killall to /bin/ before running
the link command.
