Kaffeine installation xine-lib


Good day. I am having some problems installing Kaffeine 0.7.1. I am using Mandriva 2005LE. I have untared the file & tried to run the ./configure command. It stops and tells me that I need to install xine-lib. I have installed xine-lib 1.1.1. It seems to be one of the few things I have been able to install on my system with out using URMPI or the Mandriva Install software. How do I tell Kaffeine that xine-lib is already installed? If I need to edit a file to tell it where it is at, how do I find where xine-lib was installed? Thank you for your help with this.

Why not just install kaffeine using urpmi. If you really want to compile from source, then install the devel package for xine lib.

Thank you. I'll try that. I want to learn how to do this without using PRM's. Besides, I would like to try the latest versions of some software, & RPM's don't always have that.

If you really like bleeding edge packages, you may want to try a source based distro like Gentoo once you get used to the Linux basics.

I have installed xine-lib. The problem is that I'm not entirely sure how to tell Kaffeine where to look for it at or where it is at. When I do a "whereis xine" this is what I get

xine: /usr/lib/xine /usr/local/lib/xine /usr/share/xine /usr/share/man/man5/xine.5.gz /usr/share/man/man5/xine.5.bz2

Which one of these is xine-lib? I notice that the first two options say lib in them, how do I tell which one is the one I need. After that, how do I tell Kaffeine to look in that location for xine-lib? Thank you again for your help.
