/usr/include/sys

I have inadvertently clobbered /usr/include/sys on my Linux 2.0.27 (Red Hat 4.0)/ AXP (DEC Alpha) system.
Where can I find the files I need to restore it or what is the symbolic pointer I should enter to fix the problem?

/usr/include/sys should be a symlink to the kernel source.
Go to /usr/src/linux, and enter (as root) make config.
Your answers are not important (unless you intend to compile your own kernel), but now you will have links for /usr/include/sys and /usr/include/linux

Seems like I made a mistake. /usr/include/sys is *not* a symlink to the kernel source. (That's what you get when answering Linux questions while running Windows95 ;-)
You should re-install the RPM package that contains the include files. (Probably something with libc in its name.)
