[URGENT]linux/limits.h: Input/output error


I'm trying to compile this program of mine and get these :

In file included from /usr/include/bits/posix1_lim.h:126,
from /usr/include/limits.h:144,
from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/3.2.2/include/limits.h:132,
from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/3.2.2/include/syslimits.h:7,
from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/3.2.2/include/limits.h:11,
from /usr/include/bits/socket.h:31,
from /usr/include/sys/socket.h:35,
from chat_client.c:6:
/usr/include/bits/local_lim.h:36:26: linux/limits.h: Input/output error
make: *** [chat_client] Error 1


I have no idea about this error. Any ideas??

Thanks a lot in advance for your time.

Code:
       EIO    I/O  error.  This  will happen for example when the
              process is in a background process group, tries  to
              read  from  its  controlling  tty, and either it is
              ignoring or blocking SIGTTIN or its  process  group
              is  orphaned.   It  may  also occur when there is a
              low-level I/O error while reading from  a  disk  or
              tape.
Sounds like possible problem with your harddrive? You might want to umount the partition that /usr/include/bits resides on and fsck it.

please don't try to mark threads as urgent. all threads are answered on a purely voluntary basis, and so it is not fair to try to demand a quicker response. cheers.
