Description collin 2000-01-03 12:30:01 EST
I am trying to upgrade my RedHat 6.1 system from kernel 2.2.12-20 to
2.2.13. However, the upgrade process fails at
    make xconfig or make menuconfig

with something about a missing file in tk***.o.

Please help. I need this beacause my PPP connection is not working with
the default kernel.

I tried again to upgrade my system by compiling the kernel-2.2.13 source. Each
time I execute a make command, e.g. 'make xconfig', 'make dep', I get the
following errors:
stdio.h: no such file or directory
string.h: no such file or directory.

It appears they are lots of missing links for header files!!!

Please accept my apologies. I finally realized that I had not installed the
glibc-devel package so my standard C header files wer non-existant.
Thank you
