    Cool Problem with kernel config

    I compiled the kernel with Magic System Request options the kernel work's but it gets stuck sometimes, it happened a couple of times i have no idea why?
    Anyway i'm trying to compile it again but can't even get the config running
    I tryed:
    - copy the old confilg to .config
    - make oldconfig
    - make config
    - make xconfig
    but every time i get:
    root@ubuntu:/usr/src/linux3# make oldconfig
    HOSTCC scripts/basic/fixdep
    scripts/basic/fixdep.c:105:23: error: sys/types.h: No such file or directory

    scripts/basic/fixdep.c:112:19: error: stdio.h: No such file or directory
    In file included from /usr/lib/gcc/i486-linux-gnu/4.0.2/include/syslimits.h:7,
    from /usr/lib/gcc/i486-linux-gnu/4.0.2/include/limits.h:11,
    from scripts/basic/fixdep.c:113:
    make[1]: *** [scripts/basic/fixdep] Error 1
    make: *** [scripts_basic] Error 2

    I tryed opening the source code to a new folder but i get the same error
    and make mrproper make clean didn't help either
    Does someone know why the system gets stuck after i compiled it ??
    and why can't I config a new kernel ??

    I don't know if it helped him, but it certainly helped me ...
    (is about 7 years ago since I compiled a linux kernel from source)

    an old BSD addict thanks you.
