    kernel config error

    I want to recompile my kernel (2.4.3) but when i do 'make xconfig' i get this error.

    "tkparse.c:48: stdio.h: no such file or dir'
    'make[1]: *** [tkparse.o] error 1'

    I tried 'make menuconfig' but got this.

    'unable to find Ncurses libraries, you must have Ncurses installed in order to use 'make menuconfig'

    So i went to the Debian site and dowloaded and installed the ncurses package.

    I still get the same errors.

    I checked the file in my /usr/src/linux/scripts and tkparse.c tkparse.h and tkcond.c are there.

    Any help on this would be greatly appreciated, as i want to start using iptables, but will have to recompile my kernel to do so.
    Cheers

    hello,
    are ya running woody or potato? you may need to make some links so it can find stdio.h (which should be in /usr/include).

    Re: kernel config error

    Well i managed to fix the problem - my libncurses5 was corrupt (the one i updated from debian testing) so i downgraded it to the one on the install cd.
    Now i can (have done) recompile my kernel. Its strange that when i upgraded it it never said anything about it being bad!!
    thanks to all who helped
    Cheers
