error when creating menuconfig


Hi everyone, when I try to use make menuconfig to create the config menu for the kernel I get the following error, I tried it on two different kernel source files and it's the same, could it be a gcc misconfiguration?

Quote:
bellerophon:/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.15-1-686# make menuconfig
HOSTCC scripts/basic/fixdep
gcc: scripts/basic/fixdep.c: No such file or directory
gcc: no input files
make[1]: *** [scripts/basic/fixdep] Error 1
make: *** [scripts_basic] Error 2
bellerophon:/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.15-1-686#
Thanks

Make sure you have ncurses installed.

Problem solved !!!

I did have ncurses installed but it seems that my gcc was not well configured. Luckily there's a small package in Deb called build-essentials which assures you with everything you need to compile a kernel, and voila !!

Thanks
