Problem compiling C++ packages


Hi all.

I'm quite new to Linux so any guidance would be highly appreciated. I have been trying to install a Binary Newsgroup Reader for a while now but keep getting the same message.

I'm trying to install klibido, and when i run ./configure I get the message:
Your Installation isn't able to compile simple C++ programs.

I checked yast, I have libstdc++ installed... am I missing anything?


*EDIT*
I fixed this first error... I was missing gcc-c++

I solved the next error:
Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!
With this command:
./configure --x-includes='/usr/X11/include' --x-libraries='/usr/X11/lib'

But now I'm stuck...

configure: error: We need a working libXext to proceed. Since configure
can't find it itself, we stop here assuming that make wouldn't find
them either.


I checked /usr/lib/X11/lib and I have both libXext.so.6 and libXext.so.6.4

If anyone has some quick help, please don't hesitate.
Thanks for your time!

I fixed my above problem, now I'm just calling ./configure (without any parameters)

Now I'm getting the below error:
configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.0) (library qt-mt) not found. Please check your installation!
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.
Make sure that you have compiled Qt with thread support!


Argh! =) This is turning out to be quite the hassel.
Luckily these seem like errors that won't come on a mature system... just a fresh install...

Anyways, any support for my recent issue would be highly appreciated.

This may be considered normal when installing from source....in my experience anyway.

For your latest problem, you'll need to install the qt-mt-devel package. In SuSE (and many other distros), then many library packages are split in two. The regular version contains the files needed to run programs that use the library. The development version (usually suffixed with -devel) contains files needed to compile programs that use the library.

Hope this helps!

trevelluk, thanks for explaining the devel packages to me...

I'm going nuts trying to find qt-mt-devel... any idea where I can find this?

Sorry, I may have got the name of the package wrong. On my Debian system, it's libqt-mt-dev. I haven't used SuSE in a while, but I think YaST provides a package search facility. Try searching for "qt", and looking for something along these lines.
