I have a ryzen processor so I have the "experimental" flag set for my gentoo-sources kernel, which is 4.16.11-gentoo. I compiled this about mid-march of this year and it has run successfully since then. I updated the system (emerge -uDN world) yesterday, June 9th, and proceeded to recompile the kernel, because I wished to make some minor modifications.

It would not compile, and complained that there was no "/usr/include/bits/sigset.h" library. I found this elsewhere and inserted a copy of it and the compiler then looked for xlocale.h which was not available.

I then deleted the "experimental" flag, which gave me a more secure 4.16.11 kernel source, but the problem repeated on that.

I note that my last update included a revised glibc which may have some relevance.

I am posting this before reporting a bug, to see whether this is simply a fault on my computer, or is affecting others. I'd be grateful to learn if anyone else is experiencing this problem.

gcyoung,

On my and64 box, I don't have those files either.
Code:
 $ equery b sigset.h
 * Searching for sigset.h ...
app-cdr/cdrtools-3.02_alpha09 (/usr/include/schily/sigset.h)
cross-alpha-unknown-linux-gnu/glibc-2.25-r11 (/usr/alpha-unknown-linux-gnu/usr/include/bits/sigset.h)
cross-armv6j-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi/glibc-2.25-r11 (/usr/armv6j-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi/usr/include/bits/sigset.h)
roy@NeddySeagoon_Static ~ $ equery b xlocale.h
 * Searching for xlocale.h ...
cross-alpha-unknown-linux-gnu/glibc-2.25-r11 (/usr/alpha-unknown-linux-gnu/usr/include/xlocale.h)
cross-armv6j-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi/glibc-2.25-r11 (/usr/armv6j-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi/usr/include/xlocale.h)
x11-libs/wxGTK-3.0.4 (/usr/include/wx-3.0/wx/xlocale.h)
roy@NeddySeagoon_Static ~ $

That they are included in older cross glibc doesn't count.

Does a
Code:
make clean
before you rebuild your kernel help?

The p flag is "pretend" so you didn't update anything.

'pv' was a force of habit! Yes I did execute [emerge -uDN world]. Useful comments please. Don't nit-pick.
No, I didn't do "make clean" before recompiling. I have assumed that this will remove all my previous settings which have been developed over a number of years? Anyway, I'll give it a try. ( But save the old configuratation)

Thanks NeddySeagoon! [make clean] did the trick. Seems so obvious now!

If you had done it wrong, that nit-pick would have been a critical observation. I think it was a useful comment under the circumstances.

I apologise. It was a mistake on my part, and although you must have thought me pretty daft to think I had updated the system after seeing the result of those parameters, there are plenty of daft people in the world.

At least I have now learned that 'make clean' does not wipe my configuration, and I shall do it now every time I update a kernel!
