im almost there guys! ....but, yet another question???


ok.........in 6.9. Linux-Libc-Headers-2.6.8.1 the instructions for compiling the linux-libc-headers are similar to the instructions in 5.6. Linux-Libc-Headers-2.6.8.1.

My question is this......since this has already been done once back in 5.6 does that mean that I need to simply issue these commands from the root directory, or do I need to unpack the tar ball again, enter the untarred linux-libc-headers-2.6.8.1 directory, and issue the commands from there as I did in the previous build???


Thanks guys

I think, you can reuse unpacked headers @ chapter 5 (needn't to unpack the tar ball again)
