configure: error: makedepend is required to build Mesa
 
I use ubuntu. I'm trying to install Mesa 3d Graphics Library from http://mesa3d.sourceforge.net/. I've downloaded the 7.10 version and tried to run the configure file in it and heres what I get.

Code:

configure: error: makedepend is required to build Mesa

I tried googling about that error but none of the results are helping. Desperately need help. Thanks in advance.

/usr/bin/makedepend is provided by xutils-dev :

sudo apt-get install xutils-dev

That did fix the current error but theres another error after that. I'll just give up installing it for the time being. Thanks for your help.

Well, Mesa is already installed in all Ubuntus.

Example, Ubuntu 11.04 : Version 7.10.2
http://packages.ubuntu.com/natty/libgl1-mesa-dev

The command : 'dpkg --get-selections | grep mesa'
.. will probably show :
libgl1-mesa-dri , libgl1-mesa-glx , libglu1-mesa.

Other "mesa" packages :
sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-swx11-dev libglu1-mesa-dev

The complete list with all parts of Mesa 7.10.2 :
http://packages.ubuntu.com/source/natty/mesa

..
