problem in installing from source


I have the some problem when trying to install from source. When I try to configure by

./configure

it starts the process but it terminates with error something like this...

...
...
checking for dlopen in -ldl... (cached) yes
checking for shl_unload in -ldld... no
checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!
[root@localhost kxine-0.4]#


now what should I do?

my system:

Red Hat 9.0
Linux Kernel 2.4.20
GCC 3.2.1
GNU libc 2.3.2

Hi there

Is X installed and configured correctly on your box, if so check the paths and see if you configure or install script of the app u trying to compile is pionting to those directories.

How can I check if it is configured right? Everything seem to work fine, I use X without any problem.

How can I check paths, where can I change them?
