Question problem installing wine - no Xfree


Hello!

Complete linux newbie wondering why wine gives me the following error:

*** Warning: X development files not found. Wine will be built without
*** X support, which currently does not work, and would probably not be
*** what you want anyway. You will need to install devel packages of
*** Xlib/Xfree86 at the very least.


even though my package manager says I have it installed :|
what package is it reffering to?

if anyone can help me with a newbie step-by-step installation of wine (using SuSE 9.0)

Thank you!

I love the linux community so helpful! LONG LIVE LINUX!

the XFree86-devel package, not just the XFree86 one ... just like it says in the error ..
