Exclamation Unusual Installation Phenomona


I am having a bit of trouble getting sofware to install.

Fealing abit heady after my successes rebuilding my kernel. I thought I might try installing a few things I got Unreal Tounement working (Ish still neads some hevy work) but I tryed installing a game called CriticalMass (all this is to find out if my NVIDA TNT2 Card has been installed properly) and it came up with an error during the "make install" part of the installation "warning: extra tokens at end of #endif directive" on one of the files being compilled. Being a bit weary after my unreal difficultys I decided just to give up. Then when trying to install my next project vmware It tryes to compille itself a module for the kernel the same error crops up "warning: extra tokens at end of #endif directive" on one of the files its using. Am I missing something? Is there some essential part of linux you nead to install things with that everones keaping quiet about???


"Well.. I ask you!" - Quite lituraly in this case.

Any help would be most, most welcome. AS I am verry new to this.
-See I even used the silly simbol. (no offence, OH god Im digging my self in deaper)

Smile Any Source of meterial

Sorry I was hoping if no one knows what could be wrong with my gcc compalation. If someone knew where I might be able to find out because I realy dont know where to begin. Im new to linux (and the comunity as well) and the error message Im getting doesn't even begin to give me a cue where to begin. I can write a bit of C and as far as I can tell there shouldnt be a priblem with the code. I assume that the use of
#elseif
is a call to some external function but Im not sure.

So I would be greatfull if anyone could point me in the right direction.

When trying to determine what errors compilation gives its good to post your errorlogs. The "Warning" text itself may be ok for *you*, but what really matters to *ppl here* are the parts before the warning text and after.
If unsure just post the whole log, you can never be punished for posting too much info...
