Please port the relevant part of your source and the command line you are using to try to compile and the error message.

just a sample code:

#include <stdio.h>

int main(){

             char bell = '\\a';
             printf ("gring!%c\\n",bell);

command line:
gcc bell.c -o bell

bell.c:1:19: error: stdio.h: No such file or directory
/usr/include is the default location.  How did you install gcc?
Where is it installed?  What does the command 'which gcc' return?

simply locate for file stdio.h, in Red Hat Linux it is done with locate command, (# locate filename )
search for similar command in Ubuntu linux, then update your make file.

All the best

Prashant - look at the comments above. He already fixed it for himself (hadn't installed glibc-devel). I say refund his points.
