Can't find X includes


here it is( and since im not so good at the whole terminal thing please make all solutions terminal lite)

i was attempting to install kde pager 2 so i downloaded the tar file and uncompressed. and i was going to run the standard configure, make, and make install. When i ran configure i was given this error:


Quote:
checking for size_t... yes
checking size of size_t... 4
checking for unsigned long... yes
checking size of unsigned long... 4
checking sizeof size_t == sizeof unsigned long... yes
checking crt_externs.h usability... no
checking crt_externs.h presence... no
checking for crt_externs.h... no
checking for _NSGetEnviron... no
checking for vsnprintf... yes
checking for snprintf... yes
checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!

now im not sure wht this means and wht i should do to slove the problem. since im running kde i dont understand why it can find x since kde runs on top of x. I may just be a problem with some config file but i dont know how to find it or begin to fix it. oh yeah im running 10.1 community. thanx for all yall help in advance

Go into the software installer for mandrake and install the X developement files. It is not enough when compiling to simply have the user libraries installed which is what you have when just using X or any other program for that matter. Just for future reference almost all packages require you to have installed the developement files for them, for you to be able to compile components to use with them.

Exactly in Debian you would be looking for the package xlibs-dev perhaps it is similar in Mandrake.

And those were developement files?? If not and they were just the user libraries as I said before you need the -dev packages when compiling to get the support for them. Looking at my output here on Debian again it looks like you need libjpeg62-dev and most likely libpng12-dev whatever they are called in Mandrake you should search in urpmi for the same keywords I used and see if they show up.

Code:
[HappyTux:/home/stephen]# apt-cache search  libjpeg development
libjpeg-mmx-dev - Development files for the IJG JPEG library with mmx optimization
libjpeg62-dev - Development files for the IJG JPEG library
[HappyTux:/home/stephen]# apt-cache search  libpng development
gdk-imlib1-dev - Header files needed for Gdk-Imlib development (using libpng2)
imlib1-dev - Header files needed for Imlib development (using libpng2)
libpng10-dev - PNG library, older version - development
libpng12-dev - PNG library - development
libpng2-dev - PNG library, older version - development
libpng3-dev - PNG library - development, compatibility package
BTW to save the next question have you made sure that you have the kdelibs development files installed because you will need them as well.
