Kopete .v0.10.1 Install

I managed to install SuSE9.1 Personal a few weeks back on a Dell Inspiron 1100 and got everything up and running all by myself (haven't bothered with wireless since I know the card is hardly supported) including uninstalling OpenOffice and putting in the newest 1.9.beta version instead of what comes pre-installed. At this point I was so full of myself, and angry at Kopete for random disconnects on AIM and ICQ that I figured I could upgrade that myself also. Thing is, Kopete v0.9+ doesn't come in RPMs so I would have to compile this by source, my first attempt.

After getting past not having any compilers currently installed I came across something I really had no idea to fix which is why I am here. Now when I try a ./configure I receive the following:
checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!
I run KDE as my Xserver which is what I am talking from now, and also what I was running when I tried the install, so I really don't know what is up. Any help would be much appreciated.

SuSE Personal does not have all the "programming" environment files. That is, it is a fully functional Linux distribution but you do not have any compilers or libraries necessary to compile anything.
You have to your YAST and download all those things. That was one of the reasons I moved to Slack, and that is also the reason you are getting error while trying to compile.
Hope this helps.
