I recently upgraded to RH6.2 from a RH6.1 i386 system.

When I tried to re-compile some applications, I received errors regarding 
various missing .h files.  Specifically I was compiling radius-cistron- with MySQL patches.  This application previously compiled fine 
under RH6.1.

ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.2.16/include/linux/ /usr/include/linux
ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.2.16/include/asm-i386/ /usr/include/asm

After these symbolic links were created, and some problems with the 
mysql_init() routine resolved, the application compiled OK.

directories (or links to them) were, plain and simply, missing.
