X Development Packages


Hi all... I was trying to configure a file today and I get this error:

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

I have looked on google for the answer so I didnt have to bother anyone with it here. Google stated I needed the X development packages. I continued to look for a list of X packages but could not find them. Could anyone tell me the x packages I should look for and install?

I am using Suse 9.1 personal.

Thanks for your help.

Well in Debian you would be looking for the packages in the depend line in this output most likely x-dev perhaps they are similarly named in SuSE..

Code:
>$ acsh xlibs-dev
Package: xlibs-dev
Priority: extra
Section: oldlibs
Installed-Size: 232
Maintainer: Debian X Strike Force <debian-x@lists.debian.org>
Architecture: all
Source: xfree86
Version: 4.3.0.dfsg.1-7
Depends: libice-dev, libsm-dev, libx11-dev, libxext-dev, libxi-dev, libxmu-dev,libxmuu-dev, libxp-dev, libxpm-dev, libxrandr-dev, libxt-dev, libxtrap-dev, libxtst-dev, libxv-dev, pm-dev, x-dev, xlibs-static-dev
Filename: pool/main/x/xfree86/xlibs-dev_4.3.0.dfsg.1-7_all.deb

MD5sum: 272d2e32e66adfd3dbd2d64e2ca65b10
Description: X Window System client library development files pseudopackage
 This package smooths upgrades from Debian 3.0 by depending on libice-dev,
 libsm-dev, libx11-dev, libxext-dev, libxi-dev, libxmu-dev, libxmuu-dev,
 libxp-dev, libxpm-dev, libxrandr-dev, libxt-dev, libxtrap-dev, libxtst-dev,
 libxv-dev, pm-dev, x-dev, and xlibs-static-dev.  This pseudopackage is only
 depended upon by packages that haven't yet corrected their dependencies to
 reflect the new library arrangement.
