Question Running Game, but no Speex :/

Hi I have just installed FC3 and I have told it to install all the GCC etc files onto the computer. I have copyed a game which came with this months Linux Format and I "cd" into the directory that the game files where extracted into and they I typed "./configure" it starts to display text saying things like :-

checking for library containing opendir... none required
checking for sys/types.h... yes
checking for sys/stat.h... yes
checking for stdlib.h... yes
checking for string.h... yes
checking for memory.h... yes
checking for strings.h... yes
checking for inttypes.h... yes
checking for stdint.h... yes
checking for unistd.h... yes
checking for string.h... (cached) yes
checking sys/time.h usability... yes
checking sys/time.h presence... yes
But then it stoped like so:-

checking for speex_encoder_init in -lspeex... yes
configure: error: *** Speex header not found. Please install Speex (
[intel17@localhost glob2-0.8.17]$
I did downlaod Speex from, but I dont know what to do now
lol any help would be very much apricheated (sorry i'm not a very good speller)

Thanks for reading,

'yum install speex-devel' - you will need yum set up, of course.

in addition to the above you could try yum search speex to list all packages in your repositories containing speex in their title/description,

Might help you find the speex and speex-dev packages
