can't make fluxbox 0.9.6pre1


hello--

just hoping someone can help me figure out how to compile fluxbox. i'm running 0.1.14-1 in debian (sarge) and would like a newer version of flux. ./configure seems to go fine, but make dies with these errors:


fluxbox.o(.text+0x274b): In function `Fluxbox::Fluxbox[not-in-charge](int, char**, char const*, char const*)':
FbTk/FbWindow.hh:205: undefined reference to `XRRScreenChangeSelectInput'
fluxbox.o(.text+0x6237): In function `Fluxbox::Fluxbox[in-charge](int, char**, char const*, char const*)':
FbTk/FbWindow.hh:205: undefined reference to `XRRScreenChangeSelectInput'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[4]: *** [fluxbox] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory `/home/hadal/tmp/fluxbox-0.9.6pre1/src'
make[3]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/hadal/tmp/fluxbox-0.9.6pre1/src'
make[2]: *** [all] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/hadal/tmp/fluxbox-0.9.6pre1/src'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/hadal/tmp/fluxbox-0.9.6pre1'
make: *** [all] Error 2


I can't find anything helpful about XRRScreenChangeSelectInput anywhere. grepping /usr/X11R6/ recursively shows that it's defined in /usr/X11R6/include/X11/extensions/Xrandr.h so I tried ./configure --x-includes=/usr/X11R6/include/X11/extensions/ but still got the same errors in make. help!

Looks like something you can't help.

Try building fluxbox 0.9.4, that seems to be the most stable of the devel series.

If you want a little newer, you can use 0.9.5, but that has some major bugs (which is why 0.9.6pre came out so quick).

Actually, i had the same problem with 0.9.4, which is why I download 0.9.6pre. Is there really no fixing this? I suppose I'll try some of the other blackbox variants if that's the case.
