Question X Development Libraries. (Am i going round in circles?)


Okay, Hello this is my first post. I wouldn't have come here to you if I could of figured this out on my own. I believe in thinking and solving problems by myself (its a way of learning that really helps you catch the concept more efficiently). Never the less i have come across this problem, which I kind of think is ridiculous. I've been trying to install the X development libraries, and just seems impossible.


[root@localhost Desktop]# rpm -ivh libX11-devel-1.0.3-8.0.1.ppc64.rpm
warning: libX11-devel-1.0.3-8.0.1.ppc64.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID aeb6b9c4

Anyone care to explain how I could possibly install the X development libraries.

Use the package manager (yum? synaptic?) if possible.
Or a "chain install" :
'rpm -Uvh <packagename> <packagename> <packagename> <packagename> <packagename>'
then you will not be asked for interdependencies.
See 'man rpm' why '-Uvh' should be preferred instead of '-ivh'

So I finally got to install all these packages, one small problem still remains, which i thought shouldnt.
Keep in mind I do have GCC/GCC+ installed.

libX11-1.0.3-8.0.1.ppc64.rpm libXdmcp-devel-1.0.1-2.1.ppc.rpm
libX11-devel-1.0.3-8.0.1.ppc64.rpm mesa-libGL-devel-6.5.1-7.2.ppc.rpm
libX11-devel-1.0.3-8.0.1.ppc.rpm xorg-x11-proto-devel-7.1-9.ppc.rpm
libXdmcp-1.0.1-2.1.ppc.rpm

After trying to install kmldonkey
at ./configure

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

I still receive this error why

You didn't tell how you installed the packages.
Did you use yum? Was it with rpm, using -Uvh or -ivh?
The X headers are obviously not where they are supposed to be, or at least not where kmldonkey is looking for them.

Kmldonkeys looks in 22 locations for 'X-includes'!!! So path is no problem !
The issue is : '...x_direct_test_include=X11/Intrinsic.h'
(from acinclude.m4 and configure) meaning missing 'libxt-devel'
(or libXt6-devel). If you don't find any for Yellow Dog,
you might compile the 1.0.3 version of Xorg? if possible...,
and use the components usually found in libXt + libXt-devel. See Fedora.
*Except for the headers (Intrinsic.h etc.) libXt.so.6.x and libXt.so might be needed.

Or have a look here :
