xorg-x11 installation problem in centOS

Hi everybody,

I am not sure whether this post is correct for these forum. Please accept my apology if I am wrong.

I am new to centOS . I am trying to install R in in centos version 5.4
But i got the following error :

checking for IceConnectionNumber in -lICE... no
checking X11/Intrinsic.h usability... no
checking X11/Intrinsic.h presence... no
checking for X11/Intrinsic.h... no
configure: error: --with-x=yes (default) and X11 headers/libs are not available


can anybody tell me how can install xorg-x1 package (with resolving all the relevant dependencies). ??

thanks in advance.

You need the headers, not the binary. Run: yum groupinstall "X Software Development"
