You'll need to install the "X-devel" package. I don't use Suse, but I've heard the name Yast thrown around as teh package manager it uses. So I can't be much help in telling you exactly where to find it, but that package (or one very similarly named) should be on your install CDs somewhere.

Yep, its YAST (or YAST2) and the package is xorg-x11-devel or xorg-devel.

should look a little more like this:

% ls /usr/X11R6/include/X11
Composite.h PM XKBlib.h Xfuncs.h Xprotostr.h
CompositeP.h RectObj.h XWDFile.h Xlib.h Xresource.h
ConstrainP.h RectObjP.h Xalloca.h Xlibint.h Xthreads.h
Constraint.h SM Xarch.h Xlocale.h Xutil.h
Core.h Shell.h Xatom.h Xmd.h ap_keysym.h
CoreP.h ShellP.h Xauth.h Xmu bitmaps
DECkeysym.h StringDefs.h Xaw Xos.h cursorfont.h
HPkeysym.h Sunkeysym.h Xcms.h Xos_r.h extensions
ICE Vendor.h Xcursor Xosdefs.h fonts
Intrinsic.h VendorP.h Xdefs.h Xpoll.h keysym.h
IntrinsicP.h X.h Xdmcp.h XprintAppUtil keysymdef.h
Object.h X10.h Xft XprintUtil pixmaps
ObjectP.h XF86keysym.h Xfuncproto.h Xproto.h xpm.h

you don't have xorg-devel installed or the package you installed was corrupt. try:

rpm -qa x11-devel and see if it's listed or try to reinstall it.

hey i got the xorg devel installed it dosent come with suse so i had to download it, but its one problem after another, arggg
checking for extra libs... no
checking for libz... configure: error: not found.
Possibly configure picks up an outdated version
installed by XFree86. Remove it from your system.

xfree86 is not in yast...any ideas ?
