    rdesktop install error (Xlib.h)


    im tying to ./configure rdesktop on mdk 10.1 box, then got this error.

    ERROR: could not find X Window System headers
    (searched for include/X11/Xlib.h in: /usr/X11R6 /usr/X11 /usr/openwin /usr /usr/local/X11R6 /usr/local/X11 /usr/local)
    You probably need to install the XFree86-devel package

    looking at this post:, it says xfree, but 10.1 uses

    how do i install Xlib.h then?

    Re: rdesktop install error (Xlib.h)

    if yo use xorg you need xorg-x11-devel

  3. #3

    for some reason, rpmdrake does not show me xorg-x11-devel, so i just downloaded these two packages, libxorg-x11-devel-6.7.0-4.2.101mdk.i586.rpm and xorg-x11-6.7.0-4.2.101mdk.src.rpm.

    when i rpm -ivh xorg-x11-6.7.0-4.2.101mdk.src.rpm, it simply created files in /usr/src/RPM/SOURCES, but did not install.

    what gives?

    i need to be able to run rdesktop on this box.
