Installing TARs


I'm trying to install some tar files but after ./configure,
I get this:

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

What does this mean?

Using Mandrake Official 10.1 and KDE 3.2

Thanks in advance

it might be the qt-devel. I would do a search and see what dependencies you need. can't you just use mandrakes package installer? I know there are a bunch of mandrake repos out there

look for XBASE Compartible C++ Class library, if it's not installed, install it, and also look for xorg-x11,xorg-x11-devel...........good luck
