oopssorry ....

Using morphix based on Debian with kernel 2.4.21

Previously I needed to install a lot of supplementary package since this distro dont have everything needed to compile ...

I intalled gcc 2.95, libc6-dev, kernel-header2.6.9, kernel-source 2.4.21

I know this is weird, and this leads me to another question ... with does libc6-dev need kernel-header ? .... can it use the header in the dir kernel-2.4.21 when compiling ... Or can I extract the include from the currect running kernel ?

Cause I didn't figure out how to uninstall a package under debian using kpackage ...

My hardware is AMD DUron, geforce2, USB Kb and mouse, something basic. I used the configuration files provide by morphix

One other computer that do the similar problem is a Acer Pentium 2-400 Mhz laptop, nothing particuliar
