Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

For some reason, the requirements for building the X11 video
output plugins are not met. That means, that you will NOT be
able to use the resulting xine-lib to watch videos in a window
on any X11-based display (e.g. your desktop).
If this is not what you want, provide the necessary X11 build
dependencies (usually done by installing a package called
XFree86-devel or similar) and run configure again.
are you going to ask a question then? if it's going to be "how do i make it work?" then i'd suggest taking the advice you've pasted there... nothing else to it really. if you have tried that already, tehn tell us and explain more. you might find the link in my signature useful in order to help you write better forum posts.

Sorry for not being specific enough. The question I have is when it says "usually done by installing a package called XFree86-devel or similar", where would I get it? If it is on my Fedora cd's, where would it be? I already searched the forum and I cant find anything with this same error.
I found the RPM files on the cd, but there is none that say XFree86-devel. The ones that I have are XFree86-font-utils-4.3.0-42.i386.rpm, XFree86-libs-4.3.0-42.i386.rpm, XFree86-libs-data-4.3.0-42.i386.rpm, XFree86-Mesa-libGL-4.3.0-42.i386.rpm, XFree86-Mesa-libGLU-4.3.0-42.i386.rpm, XFree86-truetype-fonts-4.3.0-42.i386.rpm, XFree86-xauth-4.3.0-42.i386.rpm, XFree86-xfs-4.3.0-42.i386.rpm.
I am guesing it would probably be XFree86-libs-4.3.0-42.i386.rpm, XFree86-libs-data-4.3.0-42.i386.rpm. Is this correct?
nope, they are the core libraries. the pacakge you need is the c header files. have you checked all teh CD's? if you can't find it there, try http://rpm.pbone.net but remember that it MUST be the exact same version.
