Problem in configuring w/ X includes


Hey y'all-
I had a problem earlier with Suse 9.1 Personal not coming with gcc. That's solved. Except I think I'm missing a library or something along those lines.

Here's my problem:
I downloaded the source for kcheckmail, and went to do the ./configure

It gets a good ways and then comes screaming at me with:
checking for X ... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!

Anyone know which includes/libraries/anything I need?

Thanks,
Jason

Check that you've installed the XFree86-devel package.

Well I installed the XFree86-devel package, and now I get this error:

checking for libz... configure: error: not found.
Possibly configure picks up an outdated version
installed by XFree86. Remove it from your system.

Check your installation and look into config.log

I already installed the zlib package, which appears to provide libz, but maybe I'm on something.

Anyways, this error is a few lines after the previous error, so we're making some ground here. But I still have some ways to go. I think I should have just gotten Suse Pro.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Jason

If you read the config.log file, it will show you where it's found whatever it thinks is zlib.
Also, for all of these make sure that you have the -devel version of the package installed; you will need this to compile anything against each library in question.

I solved the initial zlib problem by looking in the config.log, of course after posting though

Apparently it was trying to find zlib.h, but for some reason mine was in include/linux instead of X11RS/... So I just made a link to it. Hopefully that won't cause any issues.

But now more problems ...
Apparently I'm missing confdefs.h. So now I get to find it, then put it somewhere.

Is there a catch-all development package I should look at getting?

Thanks again,
Jason
