Re: Cannot compile anything

You are almost certainly missing a package. It might be quicker to do a complete
reinstall than to try to find out which package you are missing. So do a
workstation install. Then you can use rpm to remove / add packages after

Subject:  Cannot compile anything

Hello everybody,

I've just installed RH 6.1, but it doesn't compile anything!
Admittedly, I installed RH with custom install, perhaps I missed a

If I e.g. try to build a new kernel and type "make menuconfig" in
/usr/src/linux, I get

rm -f include/asm
( cd include ; ln -sf asm-i386 asm)
make -C scripts/lxdialog all
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.2.12/scripts/lxdialog'
gcc -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -DLOCALE
curses.h>"   -c lxdialog.c -o lxdialog.o
In file included from lxdialog.c:22:
dialog.h:22: sys/types.h: No such file or directory
dialog.h:23: fcntl.h: No such file or directory
dialog.h:24: unistd.h: No such file or directory
dialog.h:25: ctype.h: No such file or directory
dialog.h:26: stdlib.h: No such file or directory
dialog.h:27: string.h: No such file or directory
dialog.h:29: curses.h: No such file or directory
lxdialog.c:53: locale.h: No such file or directory

If I try to compile other programs, I get similar error msgs (none of
the included headers is found). But I can see all of the header files
in /usr/src/linux/include/linux !
I've already tried to add the include path with -I<path> and
-L<path>, to no avail.
The packages kernel-headers, kernel-source and egcs are installed.

What am I missing here?

Thanks a lot for any help!
