OpenGL, Mesa, X11 and plenty of woes


pardon my ignorance, but i'm struggling here to get Mesa-4.0.3 functioning (in Mandrake 9). I've installed the Mesa-4.0.3-mdk.rpm (incl. in Mandrake 9 distribution) along with the necessary libraries. Now EVERY c++ demo or snippet of code i see (on the web and in the examples) includes the following line (or something similar):

#include <X11/Xlib.h>

now there isn't a "Xlib.h" on my setup. do i need to download it? is it hiding?

also, i don't see how the files included in Mesa-4.0.3-6mdk.rpm can be used in anyway (they all seem to be documents).

i'm really lost.
please help.
