RHEL 6.0 Kernel Build issue


I have installed RHEL 6.0(30 days evaluation version) on my PC.It is working fine.
But I tried to compile source code,it is getting failed:

The method I followed to compile RHEL6.0 kernel Source are:

1) I take the package kernel-devel-2.6.32-71.el6.x86_64.rpm and extract it into my directory
2) From 2.6.32-71.el6.x86_64 directory,I executed make command
I got the following make error
" SYMLINK include/asm -> include/asm-x86
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `missing-syscalls'. Stop.
make: *** [prepare0] Error 2 "

please let me know how can I rectify this problem


Regards,
ShibuThomas

You need to get the src(source) rpm and not the devel rpm. The devel rpm is used to compile stuff against/for the kernel, not to compile the kernel. The source rpm will look EXACTLY like the binary rpm except it will have src in the name.
