[Rd] R-2.2.0 Compile problem on Slackware 10.2

Your system is badly screwed up. On my Slackware 10.2,
/usr/include/asm/errno.h is just a plain file and doesn't
include anything else, unlike yours, which seems to look
for "asm-generic/errno.h".

The package you need to re-install is "kernel-headers-2.4.31-i386-1".
It is part of the d series, on your slackware CD or wherever you got
it installed from. On your box, the file is not missing but screwed
up, so you should get somebody more experienced to take a look at
your box and get it fixed before trying to uninstall/reinstall.

Good luck.

P.S. for ix86, very old slackware [kernel 2.2 or before?] "asm/errno.h"
is linked to "/usr/src/linux/include/asm-i386/errno.h" [because 
"/usr/include/asm" is linked to "/usr/src/linux/include/asm", which
in turn is linked to "asm-i386" (I have an "asm-generic", which
is just a link from asm-i386); for more modern boxes, "asm/errno.h"
is just a plain file in a plain directory.
