Installing KDEMultimedia

Im running RH 8.0 with a fresh install, and I am trying to install this mp3 player for KDE. Inside the shell I cd to the directory, and run ./configure. It scrolls through alot of messages and stops finally with this one:

checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!

I'm newto linux, so I'm not sure what that means.

Are you sure this is a Mp3 players? This look more like a part of KDE And this will not install without some others "part" you have to compile before this one.
If you are a newbie, you really DON'T want to compile Kde from source.... it's very hard, dangerous for your actual kde, unpredictable...

Get XMMS, it's a very good mp3 players, close to Winamp. If you installed Gnome, you probably already have it.
