I am losing track and am blown over (in a good way) by the many
responces, all will be studied.
So to date I did try VAL's suggestion and was surprised by getting
ths same error;
> /usr/include/bits/local_lim.h36:26: linux/limits.h: Npsuch file or directory
> make: *** [scripts/mkdep] Error 1
I have not yet tried to address this directly by replacing
the file only. It may be the only way to go??? and keep the server
I did find on the CD and click on "Live up-date," now, at
this time, it is a few hours later, I have a reported 9 minutes left
in the installation AND GET THIS a error in installing
"tk-832-7mdki586" and several other packages!
Well "Sherlock"(s), I can see a new 8.2 CD package in my
future for the new AMD 1800 on my work bench. (It need hd's still)
Oh I did a install from the CD yesterday the error (limits)
is still there, UGH!
On my wall is a cartoon/drawing of a duck-human-like figure
in a business suit, with a LARGE hammer in hand. The caption reads
"HIT ANY KEY TO CONTINUE!" I thought that was for windows.
May the Norse GODs who look out for Linux users bless me,
Live up-date is about to apply changes to my system!!!!
