new to linux upgrading kopete

I've just installed mandrake 10.1 and it is bundled with kopete 0.8.4. I want to upgrade this to the latest version 0.9.2. I tried downloading the sourcecode on kopete official download page, untared and then i tried to configure. It gave me the error "couldn't find x". What is x exactly? Is it the interface to linux? How do i find where it is and how do i configure the kopete configure script to point to this? Any help would be greately appreciated.

you need to install the devel packages of xorg, which I think are libxorg-x11-devel. Have you setup any urpmi sources for your installation coz it can save you time and effort when installing packages. IF you haven't pay a visit to and easyurpmi.

So, check this please and use another prefix!
