kernel 2.6.1 make error


Hi, I was all set to compile my kernel (2.6.1) when I got this error:

HOSTCC scripts/fixdep
In file included from /usr/include/bits/posix1_lim.h:126,
from /usr/include/limits.h:144,
from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i486-slackware-linux/3.3.2/include/limits.h:122,

make[1]: *** [scripts/fixdep] Error 1
make: *** [scripts/fixdep] Error 2

So far I have had to swaret gcc and make to compile the kernel which is no troubles as I like to install the bare minimum at first then install the rest later. But I was wondering whether I might not have not installed something that is needed also to compile the kernel. If anyone can offer some advice or has some suggestion that would be great. Thanks

You seem to be missing some of the kernel header files, wich are pretty essential for compiling the kernel. Try reinstalling the sources, if that doesn't work, download them again and install.
And if it still doesn't work, take two aspirins and call me in the morning =)

How do you do that?
I have the same problem.

Thanks.

(my linux knowledge is very poor)
