comment GNU Make does not ignore failed command
@Ruslan the /dev/null stuff will silence the error from rmdir but to silence make you will need to append || true

comment How to get more info about the boot message “Waiting for /dev to be fully populated”
I remember having to enable logging (recording to a file) for the boot log. When I had a problem. I can not remember how.

comment How can I set up one-way scp?
You can use file-permission, including the sticky bit. This will allow removal of users own files, only. (Not quite stop all together, but may be what you need.)

probably not configured to do the ones in home directory, but you can run it manually, or add configuration.

Your teacher says “don't use cd by itself”. because cd will do the job, she wants you to find another way. There are several, at least 2 start cd. Another starts with pushd

comment Linux distribution targeting developers
I use Debian. On Debian if you install something, then all of its dependencies are also installed. So it is not to much trouble. If you have the space and the time, then you could tell it to install all dev libraries, may be the entire system. But usually once you know what library you need it is easy to install. But first you need to know what; you need to knew this any way to be able to use it, so it is not to much trouble.

Or better shopt -s failglob. This will stop the ln from running.
