I was installing some proprietary software in my RHEL 4 system, but it returned with an error for sctp.h header not found error. With the initial investigation I found that sctp is not installed in the machine.
Can someone please let me know how can I install the sctp into the system. I m not very confident on building the kernel with the patches as instructed and available at OpenSS7: Status: Projects: IP Transport: SCTP .
Though I have found the include file sctp.h and sysctl.h in extract of this distribution linux-sctp-0.2.19.tgz
Will it be ok to just simple copy the file to the required directory. Or is there any other feasible alternative is possible
RHEL 2.6.9-5
