make xconfig error


I'm trying to do a 2.6.11. kernel config in knop 3.8.2 following

http://newbiedoc.sourceforge.net/tut...el-pkg.html.en

I get up to make xconfig (or menuconfig) & get the folowing error

make xconfig
HOSTCC scripts/basic/fixdep
In file included from /usr/include/sys/socket.h:35,
from /usr/include/netinet/in.h:24,
from /usr/include/arpa/inet.h:23,
from scripts/basic/fixdep.c:115:
/usr/include/bits/socket.h:305:24: asm/socket.h: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [scripts/basic/fixdep] Error 1
make: *** [scripts_basic] Error 2

Anyone know what this means? do I need to downmload something else. I already downloaded 40mb worth of stuff.

can't say quite why that's not working, but the normal reason for the fault itself is that there is no symlink from /usr/src/linux/include/asm to include/asm-<your-arch-here> - normally asm-i386. just pop that symlink in yourself and see.
