Hi All,

	I may be in deep this time, can't imaging what will happen on 
next reboot.
  To answer Malcolm suggestion of sending more info, I need to know is 
there a simple way to copy text in the gunome terminal window, to a 
text file,(anything text will do, gedit etc.).

	2:14 AM-8/8/02
	In order to do something today I went ahead and cleaned out 
all files in /usr/src. Then unpacked a new 2.4.19.  Surprisingly I 
still get "file not found" error on "make dep" after make menuconfig. 
The original kernel is 2.4.3 Mandrake 8.0.


	from scriptd/mkdep.c:35
/usr/include/bits/local_lim.h36:26: linux/limits.h: Npsuch file or directory
make: *** [scripts/mkdep] Error 1

For those who have not followed the thread.....

	 I cleaned out the files (in usr/src) and started it 
again(the kernel up-date), now getting started is a problem, any 
"make" command yields a "file not found" after 4-5 lines of text. I 
did go ahead and use "make -i" for each "make" command and now wonder 
if it was a good idea, Malcolm thinks not. At this point I agree with 
him. Any one have a clue to this?

1.	Even starting over at this point is likely to bring the "file 
not found" error.(it did) I have done that many times.(and again) Soo 
how do I copy the text from the terminal to a text editor?(I ended up 
just typing it in)

	Better still what is the problem?? Can I "do" "make -i" and 
get away with it, given the "Info" from the error message above?
