Question configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the c


hey, i am a new user to linux
i was trying to install a softwere called Apollon on Suse 9.2. i downloaded the .run file coz the website said this file will contain everything i need as far as the plugins.
while i was install it, i had couple of errors but they were easy to deal with, coz in the log file it mentioned a website where i can download sofrwere and install them to get things going. so i i did that couple of times until i reached this msg which i don't know how to deal with!

* configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!


Anybody have any ideas of how to deal with this, or what to do to finish my installing, coz i really wanna try Apollon.


Thank you in advance

You need to install the development packages for xorg. I think they are named something like xorg-x11-devel or something similar.

it worked!

i installed xorg-x11-devel-6.8.1-15.4.i586.rpm. when i tried the .run file agian, it passed that error. BUT now i get this:

* configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.2) (library qt-mt) not found. Please check your installation!
* For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.
* Make sure that you have compiled Qt with thread support!
***** Return value 1


i know i might sound dependent here, but i really don't know what it mean.
any ideas ?!!

You need to install qt development packages (qt-devel or libqt-devel).

grab em off your install cd/dvd ( you should always check there first, getting random packages from the net that were not built for Suse 9.2 specifically will cause you problems sooner or later)

Try searching for qt instead of qt3. Suse definitely has this package.

There are several package related to qt3. You probably need to install qt3-devel, or maybe qt3-static.

EDIT: I case you are using the EVAL version of 9.2, you may find this interesting:

Development packages usually contain the word "devel".
