Simple newbe question

Just installed Redhat 9.0. Went to install Xine for my videos. Downloaded xine-lib unpacked it compiled it and installed it with no problems. Downloaded gxine-0.3.3 unpacked it went to compile it and it had this error message

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXtst
collect 2 : ld returned 1 exit status
make ****error 1

I used TFSE and found this post:

go into the folder you extracted gxine
and make this changes in line 86 of Makefile
LDFLAGS = -L/usr/X11R6/lib
open up src/Makefile and make this changes in line 86
LDFLAGS = -L/usr/X11R6/lib

I know how to get to the gxine Makefile I just don't know how to edit it the gxine Makefile.
So could someone help a newbee who don't have a clue.

I didn't understand your question fully,but if you mean how to edit gxine makefile:
If you're in command-line mode, go to the directory where the file is and type, without quotation marks, "vi <filename>", or, "pico <filename>" (Pico is easier to use), and save. If you're in GUI mode (using KDE or Gnome), you just right click on it and open it with gEdit (Gnome) or kEdit (KDE), find the lines where the change should be done and change the lines. Then just save the file. After that you run the makefile again...
