You need to install the X development packages - xlibs-devel or XFree86-devel or whatever they might be called on your distribution.

Thanks for the reply.
I tried searching in those webpages. but i didnt find it for Suse 10.2
I have searched in google also. no results....
i wonder if xlibs-devel is the appropriate name used in Suse or is there something equivalent in Suse. Please help.
