error compiling linux


I am trying to compile kernel (without problems, but i got the following message :

# make
HOSTCC scripts/basic/fixdep

what is that? problems about headers? directories?

thank you

Re: error compiling linux

Have you installed the kernel-devel and/or kernel-headers package?
That appears to be the one that installs /usr/include/linux/limits and asm/socket.h.

These are for your existing system, as various limits and definitions get used by
the configure tools.

Re: error compiling linux


Sorry, i forget the info ... my system is a fc 12 using a kernel from kernel.org ... i've prefer compile by myself to get a minimal kernel ( i got a old p4 a 1,6ghz 2gb ram) but i got fedora kernels from updates too ...

I am trying to compile a kernel from www.kernel.org, linux- full .. i made the same with and all ok

I got kernels from fedora distro (kernel-devel and kernel-headers installed) and kernel.org

I dont know why about directory paths and files ... why make finds it? ... i think that linux- include all needed ...

how to configure the install path ? ... if i am using /usr/src/kernels/linux- and all bzip2 extracted into it ... i can't see "configure" tool ....

thank you
