Trying to compile mpv, how to install X11 dev packages (Fedora)


Hello, GNU/Linux lovers!

As the title says, I'm trying to build mpv from source. However, the buld script fails, saying "No OpenGL video output found or enabled." I tried running:

Code:
sudo dnf groupinstall "X Software Development"
Sadly that didn't make any difference. Looking over the build script's output, I found messages like: "Checking for OpenGL X11 Backend: x11 not found" and "Checking for X11: no ('x11 >= 1.0.0 xscrnsaver >= 1.0.0 xext >= 1.0.0 xinerama >= 1.0.0 xrandr >= 1.2.0' not found)", so I guess it's not even bothering to look for OpenGL stuff, since it can't find any X11 headers. Other video outputs like vaapi, vdpau, and xv are also not being found.

What packages am I missing?

PS: the build I downloaded from RPMFusion sucks. When I installed mpv from there, everytime I tried to launch it, I got an error about some missing JackAudio library. I don't want JackAudio, since I have no use for it.

OK, I've been dealing with this stupid problem all day, and mere minutes after making my OP, I find out what the problem was. I just needed to install "ghc-X11-xft-devel", which I guess isn't part of "X Software Development" (though I think the similarly-named "ghc-X11-devel" package is). That produced a build of mpv that could totally handle OpenGL video. I also want to install VDPAU headers, but I think I've already got that worked out, (mpv is re-building now).

By the way, there are other dependencies for Fedora. Many of them can be found on this Reddit post.
