    limits.h Not Found

    Hey, I've been trying to compile a .c file but I got this error message.

    PHP Code:
    i686-pc-linux-gnu-gcc -fno-strict-aliasing -mtune=atom -march=i686 -O2 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer -fstack-protector -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=-ggdb3 -funwind-tables -fasynchronous-unwind-tables -DNDEBUG -mtune=atom -march=i686 -O2 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer -fstack-protector -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=-ggdb3 -funwind-tables -fasynchronous-unwind-tables -fPIC -fwrapv -fPIC -I/usr/include/python2.7 -c yali/_sysutils.-o build/temp.linux-i686-2.7/yali/_sysutils.-Wall
    In file included from 
    from /usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.5.2/include/limits.h:34,
    from /usr/include/python2.7/Python.h:19,
    from yali/_sysutils.c:10:
    usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.5.2/include/limits.h:169:61fatal errorlimits.hNo such file or directory
    compilation terminated
    errorcommand 'i686-pc-linux-gnu-gcc' failed with exit status 1 
    It says that limits.h couldn't be found but there is a limits.h in include folder. So I cannot understand why I get this error.

    Strange - I though /usr/lib is where the libraries are found (.a, .so etc).

    Header files are usually in /usr/include
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
