The X includes are located in the devel-package of your X server. I don't know the exact name on FC3, but it should be similar to xorg-x11-devel or xfree86-x11-devel.

Unhappy Can't find X includes

Thanks

Same answer as before. You need to install the xorg development package. What distro and version are you using?

I am using Mandrake 10.1 Official. I saw in the RPMdrake that I have xorg-x11-6.7.0-3mdk. May I know where is the Xorg located and how do I add the path?

Thanks a lot for your help.

There is no path to add as long as the 'devel' package is not installed. After that, ./configure should find it automatically.

On Mandrake you need to install libxorg-x11-devel using urpmi e.g. as root you would do,
Code:
#urpmi libxorg-x11-devel
As mentioned above there is not need to mess around with your paths.

Thanks for your prompt reply. I got the following error when trying to install libxorg-x11-devel-6.7.0-3mdk.i586. I found out that I have libfreetype6-2.1.9-2mdk. What should I do?

"Some package requested cannot be installed:
libxorg-x11-devel-6.7.0-3mdk.i586 (due to unsatisfied devel(libfreetype))
do you agree ? "

Thanks.

Kim

You may ned to update your urpmi sources. Do,
Code:
#urpmi.updatemedia -a
#urpmi libxorg-x11-devel
You should also make sure that you have conigured some update repositories using the instructions from easyurpmi.
