Despite all the good advice floating around
about not installing mandrake 7.0, I went ahead in
my usual glutton for punishment way. Tried to
upgrade my mandrake 6.1 system - but after about
3/4 of an hour the installation program decided
that wasn't a good idea. Fine. Already had all
my important stuff on my /home partition which
I hadn't told it about. Wiped / and /usr
and installed from scratch. Fine. Discovered
that basic utilities like ping and telnet
etc. aren't installed my default - annoying
to say the least.
Now, here's my problem. When I try to compile
the following progie:
for example, I get a few hundred errors
about "cdrom.h: parse error in before u_char......"
Any ideas wtf is going on? The kernel is a heavily
mandrakified 2.2.14, but everything seems to be
fine. Gcc is pissing me off big time at the mo.
Need to solve this problem yesterday, or 7.0 is
out on it's ear.
