X problem when installing Digikam


I'm trying to install Digikam 0.7.1
During configuration I get this error message:

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

I take it this is about the X-window. When I do a search for X11 and xorg, I get a long list of files. If this would help anyone understand what's going on, I'll post it....

I also had this problem when trying to install Snort.

I know I'm a bit vague here, but if you had similar problems, maybe you could help?

Thanx!

I assume you are using Mandrake, so the right package you need to install is libxorg-x11-devel using urpmi. You could even do "urpmi digikam" instead of compiling it.

Thanx for your answer.
New problem:
I get this error message when trying to urpmi lixorg-x11-devel:

Some package requested cannot be installed:
libxorg-x11-devel-6.7.0-4.3.101mdk.i586 (due to unsatisfied devel(libfreetype))

What does that mean?

It needs the freetype development package. You can usually resolve such a problem by updating your urpmi sources e.g. "urpmi.updatemedia -a " and then trying the installation process again. Why don't you just install digikam using urpmi e.g. "urpmi digikam" instead of compiling it.
