the reason i post this question here is because i haven't get any reply from mandrake.expert, so hope maybe you guys do have some information
story goes something like this:
i'm running mandrake 9.0, kde 3, due to the fact that most of viedo steam on the internet is for MS media player format (asx, or asf, avi..etc), i had to look for software for linux which allow me to watch those viedo. and i've been having a lot trouble when installing those software (include aviplayer, and mplayer...etc)
from the README file, they want me have qt, SDL, gclib etc... (the gcc lib part is easy), but looks like i need to install qt first before install aviplayer. (that goes to some other software as well)
problem occur: when install qt, or other software, the script was looking for files under X11, well.... i search the whole system, and only found one X11 folder under XFree86/bin....also from "ls -a" command, there's no files under X11 in mandrake.
in here, i would assume there's 2 approch to fix that,
1) forget about mandrake and go to redhat, since most software were tested in redhat, (not to mention i've been serious hell of time try to get java running on my mozilla)
2) learn to be linux guru, search for X11 file, change in ./configure script ....
please advise me what should be best method to deal with situation like this? and if i choose option 2), where are those files in mandrake?
thanks for your time and your help ^_^
