Fedora core 6 installation probs


having two strange problems when trying to install on fedora 6

i do make menuselect for zaptel-1.4.1

get the following output

grep: /lib/modules/2.6.20-1.2944.fc6/build/include/linux/autoconf.h: No such file or directory
make[1]: Entering directory /usr/src/zaptel-1.4.1/menuselect' make[2]: Entering directory/usr/src/zaptel-1.4.1/menuselect’
make[2]: menuselect' is up to date. make[2]: Leaving directory/usr/src/zaptel-1.4.1/menuselect’
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/zaptel-1.4.1/menuselect’

*** Install ncurses to use the menu interface! ***

menuselect changes NOT saved!

There seems to be two problems - autoconf.h, not present - had this problem before, does fedora do something different with this file?

also, it complains that ncurses is not installed, i have done yum install ncurses and it says “nothing to do” - I also check in the GUI and it is ticked as installed - ncurses-devel is installed too.

Anyone have any solutions to these problems?


Might be obvious, but have you followed README.linux26 to create symbolic link to source headers?

You can skip menuselect if that’s the only part giving you error.

the problem you are having is wth the kernel source. Do “yum install kernel” followed by “yum install kernel-devel” to get the latest kernel and its source respectively., and redo the make menuselect.

Then, make sure you do “x” after making your selections at the menu before doing the “make & make install”.
