Dependencies...


Hi I'm haviing trouble getting xmms installed on my debian distro that is on my xbox. I have installed xmms previously on Redhat on my pc without much trouble. I'm having trouble when it comes to installing GTK, which xmms requires. When, I do ./configure it tells me this.
"checking for X... no
configure: error:
*** X libraries or include files not found. Check 'config.log' for
*** more details."
At the end of the file it says this.
"configure:4607:27: X11/Intrinsic.h: No such file or directory
configure: failed program was:
#line 4606 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"
#include <X11/Intrinsic.h>"
I'm really a newbie at this and I'm not even sure what these libraies do. But I think that they would have these files in them. I found confdefs.h and intrinsic.h but could not figure out where to put them so that the configure process would recognize them. And even then I'm not sure if they were the exact files I needed. I looked on the Xfree web site and I found nothing about these libraries. Could someone please set me straight about these thing. I really do try to figure this all out by myself but its not working at this point. I belive the reason I'm missing these files is because this distro was more of a bare-bones release just to get ya up and running. I did manage to get kde up and running all by myself though. So X is functioning to some extent. Thanks!

you need XFree86-devel

you'll probably also need Gtk-devel further on in the ./configure process too.

Alright thanks for the help, but I cannot seem to find the devel kit this package any when I search on google. I don't know any good recources for linux info except here. All the file I found on google were dead ftp links. Could somone please drop me a hint as to where I could find this package? And I don't think I can use rpm packages in debian can I? Also, I already installed the gtk successfully. Thanks for the help.

well reading that again, why are you trying to install gtk from source? just use an existing .deb file.

Man, I'm pretty cluelss at this opint. I already got the gtk installed. So I'm not stuck on that, Its finding the devel package thats my prob. So are you telling me that there is a deb packcage that can be used as an alternative to the devel pacage.. Even if this is so, I can't find anywhere that has valid links to them. Am I just missing a bigger part of the piture or somethinng here? Thanks.

I'm proud to say that I finally got xmms running. All I had to do was force install a couple deb pacakges that I finally found. I was kinda worried that forcing the installs would cause x not to run. But aparrently it didn't hurt it one bit. Now I have to figure out why xmms will only play mp3s in window maker and not kde. In kde I can execute xmms select the files I want to play, but when i hit play the program freezes. I then have to kill it. Any ideas?
