Adding the correct installation path
When i try to install a few programs using "# ./configure" it complies correctly all the way through until it gets stuck at
"checking for X ... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths."
I have looked in the accompanying readme files and found that i need to specify the X window path.
On my computer i think the pathway is /usr/X11R6 (does this sound right)
I need to use the configure option "--X-includes=DIR" and
"--X-libraries=DIR". What do i insert into that string is it
"# ./configure --X-libraries=DIR/usr/X11R6"
"# ./configure --X-libraries=/usr/X11R6"
(and do i need to further specify the include folder pathway i.e. /usr/X11R6/includes)
I have tried a few combinations so far and theu havent worked could someone help me by being more specific about the DIR bit.
(I am running FC1 with GNOME and have been a linux user for about 4 weeks maybe)
