Make xconfig error's


Trying to upgrade tothe 2.6.7 kernel, but when I type 'make xconfig' this is the error i get:

root@darkstar:/usr/src/linux# make xconfig
HOSTCC scripts/basic/fixdep
In file included from /usr/include/sys/socket.h:35,
from /usr/include/netinet/in.h:24,
from scripts/basic/fixdep.c:107:
/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
root@darkstar:/usr/src/linux# make xconfig
HOSTCC scripts/basic/fixdep
In file included from /usr/include/sys/socket.h:35,
from /usr/include/netinet/in.h:24,
from scripts/basic/fixdep.c:107:

make[1]: *** [scripts/basic/fixdep] Error 1
make: *** [scripts_basic] Error 2
root@darkstar:/usr/src/linux#

I have no idea what this means, i currently have kernel 2.4.
I did 'apt-get install kernel-source-2.6.7' to get the source after i did a list of latest kernels.
Can anyone help?

If you have a ".config" file you want to update, save it as other file first. Then enter
Code:
make mrproper
Then restore the ".config" and try make xconfig again.
