    Aww shucks MsMittens, now you've made me feel bad, you're like the sober yin to my fiery yang ;-)
    I had /similar/ problems with a friends mandrake install - it steadfastly refused to install gcc, and an app he wanted didn't have an RPM, in the end i gave up and stuck red hat 6.2 on, which was fine when i gave it the critical security updates.
    Anyways evilseed, why not stick with debian -
    apt-get install kernel-image-2.2.13 (or whatever)
    apt-get install kernel-headers-2.2.13
    ln -s /usr/src/kernel-headers-2.2.13 /usr/src/linux

    Re: getting warmer

    Being a long time OS of the evilseed amongst us, the Linux kernel is becoming both more secure inbound and outbound.

    You will find that nslookup and the kernel header files you mentioned amongst others are deprecated.

    The 2.2.x kernels were the last that offered the raw uncensored <network nasty> options so many are fond of.

    anyway, go to http://www.kernel.org and get the source for the kernel that you want and rebuild it. An early 2.4.x kernel may also do the trick if you are concerned about running the 2.2.x series.

    Re: sort of

    Basic idea is that the kernel is evolving rapidly and some of the IDS patches are being included. Your program /*does't have to be an exploit*/ is calling on deprecated header files during `make'.

    Unfortunately this is going to happen to some programs of various kinds while the Linux kernel goes through this evolution.
    /* happened frequently between kernel 1.x.x and 2.x.x */

    Best thing to do is either hand edit the makefile or use newer programs that call on current header files during `make'.

    Of course as I said above /* but not clearly */ you could always run an older version of the kernel, that would solve some of your problems.
