Compiling tvtime on suse 10

I've been trying to compile tvtime on suse 10 and I'm at a point where its asking for X libraries. I did a ./configure and the last few lines look like this:

checking zlib.h presence... yes
checking for zlib.h... yes
checking for png_read_png in -lpng... yes
checking png.h usability... yes
checking png.h presence... yes
checking for png.h... yes
checking for freetype-config... /usr/bin/freetype-config
checking for xml2-config... /usr/bin/xml2-config
checking for X... no
configure: error: X needed and no X libraries or development headers found

I tried using yast to update the devel package for xorg (like I did with zlib and other packages) but it seems like they are already installed. How can I be sure if the xorg libraries already exist on my system?

I sorted it out. To verify that you have (at least some, if not all of) the library xorg library files you can do a search for libxaw*. Noobs remember the asterix when using the search utility in SUSE. That should return a bunch of results, which in my case has a path of "usr/X11R6/lib/". When you're doing a ./configure do it with the following parameters: ./configure --x-libraries=/usr/X11R6/lib --x-includes=/usr/X11R6/lib/ Aparently if you dont do this then the configure script wont know where the xorg library files are. You can do a ./configure -h to see all the possible arguments for the script

[------- UPDATE --------]

So I was right about not having all library files. Use yast to search for "xorg-x11-devel". That should have all you need to compile with xorg library files. Its right there on the CD (or DVD) so you dont need to bother waiting for the repositories to refresh. If you dont install that package then your going to have problems when you do the make. So now you can just: ./configure, make, make install
