Well...

what prefix are you trying to install to and do you have kde headers on your system?

prefix is where the root of the installation will be installed. so for example if kde is installed to a prefix of /opt/kde, then binary executables will end up in /opt/kde/bin, libraries in /opt/kde/lib, headers (include files) in /opt/kde/include, etc..

By default, if you just do ./configure with no arguments:

./configure
make
make install

the prefix will be /usr/local. you can change the prefix like:

./configure --prefix=/opt/kde

On to your header problem, with an rpm distro you have to keep in mind they split their packages into different parts. You probably have something like kdebase-3.3.2-i486.mdk.rpm installed for kde. There is probably a package named kdebase-3.3.2-devel-i486xxxxx that has the includes you need to compile against the kde libraries. either use urpmi or rpmdrake ( remember these need to be run as root) to install the -devel packages for kde, then redo your configure with the prefix of the kde installation ( usually /opt/kde or something similar).

Hi people. I'm a newbie in Linux and I barely know how it works. Since I am a Latex and Winedt user I tried to install Kile on my Kubuntu installation. Too much problems for the moment in the installation cause I got the error for compiling. In concrete the error is that the libstdcc++-dev file is not installed but apparently I checked all the packages and all of them are perfect. Moreover, since I don't know how to use Linux I don't know if I have to install manually such files. Does anybody know any solution? I'm getting frustrated.
