Installing Kopete 0.9.2


Ok. Heres the deal. I begin to compile my source package with configure, but everytime I try to do it, I get an error. I have SuSE 9.2 Pro

Attempt 1: ./configure

The first error i got was that it could not find the X11 files,so I tryed agan.

Attempt 2: ./configure --x-includes=/usr/X11R6/include --x-libraries=/usr/X11R6/lib

That fixed the first problem, but now I get the following error message.
We need to find a working libXext to proceed. Sence configure can't find it itself, we stop here assuming make wouldn't find them either.

So, I went to /usr/X11R6/lib and found the file libXext.so.6.4: Its there! What do i do?

I always had trouble compiling source packages within Suse. Thats why I changed to Slackware, a little more work at first, but not one problem again.
