Just a wild guess, but Debian 2.2 (aka Potato) is based on the 2.2
Kernel series. This also effects a bunch of files in the /usr/include
tree and might be the cause of your problems.
You could update your Debian system to testing/Woody or simply
temporarily symlink /usr/include/linux to /usr/src/linux/include - if
that one belongs to a current kernel version.


Every good work of software starts by 
scratching a developer's personal itch.
