Post # 17 :
Linking is done with lXext = libXext.so
No package-devel = No libXext.so
sudo apt-get install libxext-dev
.. will do.
And that goes for any other library too: '-devel' packages are required
for compiling / linking.
The whole idea is to link against "the .so link to the run time library".
Which means, if you have say two versions of the same library, the ".so"
is used to decide, wich version to use.
