libvorbis wont compile

Im having trouble installing libvorbis. After installing libogg i type ./configure in the libvorbis src directory and it says Ogg is required. This is the last 3 lines before it exits:

checking for Ogg... yes
checking for oggpack_writealign... no
configure: error: Ogg >= 1.0 required !

can someone help me? Im running slackware 8.1

IIRC Slackware is an RPM based distribution. Look for the libvorbis RPM on the CDs that came with your distro. If you cannot find them, see the following sites to download the RPMs

Only when you cannot find them, try compiling them

Maybe this will help others with a similar problem

I ran into the same problem, turns out I had the old oggutils package installed with old ogglibs that were being found first. I pkgtooled them out, and updated the ldconfig and now it's working just fine
