Kopete in Red Hat 9.0


Hi,

I am trying to install kopete under redhat 9.0. and I run the configure file and all I get is an error saying:

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

If anyone has any advice on how to fix this problem, Id appreciate it,

Thanks.

Try installing the "XFree86-devel" package.

Hi, Thank you david for your help, I installed the package and proceeded to run the script and got past that error, but i ran into this one.
checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.0) (headers and libraries) not found. Please check your installation!
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.

Sorry for bothering you, but im Trying to learn everything and am just starting out on linux, Thanks Martin

Yes, it found QT now, but now it says checking for mcopidl... not found
configure: error: The important program mcopidl was not found!
Please check whether you installed aRts correctly.

Sorry about bothering you.

try running 'ldconfig' and then do a 'make distclean' in the source dir of whatever you're building. Now re-run the ./configure script with any options you need and try the build again.

I think you need to install "libart_lgpl-devel" too.

Installs can be this difficult - I usually do a full install from the start to avoid these problems. A lot of people say "I'm not a developer - I don't need the development packages" Unfortunately this is not the case and it makes life a lot easier in the future.

Still no luck with the compiling, I tried to build a source rpm, but got the error

checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.0) (library qt-mt) not found. Please check your installation!
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.
Make sure that you have compiled Qt with thread support!
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.52729 (%build)


RPM build errors:
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.52729 (%build)

Thanks,
Martin

I think you need the "qt" and "qt-devel" packages now - it should be on the CD. (>= Qt 3.0) Just means that it needs version 3 or later.

Do "make distclean" in the kopete source, then "./configure" etc.
