Description Bill McGonigal 2001-03-12 19:22:53 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.17-14 i686)

After installing the recent Kernel security upgrades to 14-17, the gcc
compiler and "make" are not able to find some include files and libs.  
While compiling Gnome programs, gnome-config can't find things either.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install Kernel upgrade 14-17
2.  Try to compile a gnome C program using gnome-config

Actual Results:  Include files and some libs were reported as not found, or
don't exist.
They do.	

Expected Results:  Should have been able to compile and link.

Other people are seeing this same problem.  Please go to the Red Hat
forums, "Developer Network Forums",  "C and C++ Forums", "Compiling
Applications after Kernel Upgrades"
One person suggested that the Kernel upgrade includes the running of "make
mrproper" which removes the symlinks needed by the compiler.
There are other postings in the forum which indicate similar problems.
