I am running into continuous problems installing Fluxbox. I received an error stating "no X Window System found". So I configured X server and then ran ./configure for Fluxbox, it compiled then returned an error with "Could not find XOpenDisplay in -1X11".

Need help, about to give up on WM.

Will appreciate any help.

Do you have all the necessary development packages installed to compile this? And why don't you install the binary rpm, because you're using Mandrake...
