Questions about header files
I am trying to install a couple of programs on Angstrom linux on a gumstix overo with an armv7 chip.
The problem I am running into right now is that the last 2 programs I need to get installed for now are looking for 2 header files. One says its in /net the other /sys. So I assume it was looking in this area for header files as it finds some in both the /net and /sys but there is a couple headers that are there that it does not see as well as a header thats not on there. So what I thought I should do is just copy the .h from the kernel source and copy it to the location /usr/include/net and /usr/include/sys But when I re ran the program it still did not see the new header file I put in there nor the couple that were there to begin with.
Does this mean I need to include these specific headers in my $PATH or do the need to be linked or what would cause the ./configure of a program to only find some files in /usr/include/net and usr/include/sys but not others in there. I hope this is something easy that I am just not thinking of or not grasping from my recent endless reading I have been doing.
Thanks for any tips or help with this. If you need more info from me about anything please ask and I will happily provide it, tried to give all I thought was relevant.
