Missing X Libraries problem


I'm running Fedora Core 1.

I tried to install a program called XPP and got the following error messages:

make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/gauss/xpp/cvodesrc'
gcc -g -O -DAUTO -DCVODE_YES -DHAVEDLL -DMYSTR=5.85 -I/usr/X11R6/include -c -o main.o main.c
main.c:25:22: X11/Xlib.h: No such file or directory
main.c:26:23: X11/Xutil.h: No such file or directory
main.c:27:21: X11/Xos.h: No such file or directory
main.c:28:24: X11/Xproto.h: No such file or directory
main.c:29:23: X11/Xatom.h: No such file or directory
main.c:30:28: X11/bitmaps/icon: No such file or directory

I then tried to install the X Software Development from the Fedora CD package manager, but it said it could not locate XFree86-libs.

It looks like I don't have the X Libraries needed to install my program, but I don't know how to get them.
Any suggestions?

Thank you!

You need to install the XLibrary headers, which are usually in a package called XLibs-devel or XFree86-devel.

You might want to take a look at the RPM command and your Fedora install disks, or if you can't find it on the install disks.
