Kernel Header files needed for lilo (config.h no longer in kernel!)
I'm building a minimal version of linux. The only thing the minimal linux system has installed are /dev files and the newest kernel version.
I'm trying to install lilo now. Lilo comes with "QuickInst" which installs the loader into the root folder(i properly changed the root variable to point to my minimal system).
The lilo installer is telling me that the kernel header files are missing and that I need to install them. They are already installed in my minimal system!!! So i looked at the source code for the installer to see exactly which files it looks for. The only file the installer looks for is config.h - which is no longer included in the linux kernel. And i'm using the latest version of Lilo. Does anyone know any workarounds or should I just give up and use grub?? lol

Just checked 2 distros (pclos 2007, ubuntu 7.10) with kernel 2.6.xx for '/usr/include/linux/config.h' is there, an empty file, for programs
looking for the name (and obviously not checking for a valid header)
If you do 'touch /usr/include/linux/config.h' it should be ok.
