Unhappy Strange ERROR on 2.6.15.5 compile


Hi,

I took a linux-free desktop today and installed Slack 10.1 (2.4.29), and I then configured WiFi and upgraded to KDE 3.5.1 and kernel 2.6.15.5.

No problem so far (apart from when I removed KDE 3.3, I zapped by mistake the 2.4.29 sources).

I have now realized that I mistakenly omitted to include support for ntfs, so I want to recompile 2.6.15.5.

I do make mrproper, then make menuonfig, and I get this error:
HOSTCC scripts/basic/fixdep

make[1]: *** [scripts/basic/fixdep] Error 1
make: *** [scripts_basic] Error 2

I have reinstalled the source for 2.4.29 (and it allows make menuconfig with no errors), but I still get this error for 2.6.15.5.

Can someone please tell me what I need to do to get 2.6.15.5 to compile again (I have re-untar'ed the source, but still no dice).

Sussed it - I deleted the 2.4.29 headers; now reinstalled and all works well.
