Hello, I have recently switched from SuSE 9.1 to Mandrake 10.1 ( nothing wrong with suse just felt like a change) and it works really great so far except for two things. The first thing Is that the sound only works with system sounds and nothing else. The second is that when I try to install kopete 0.9.2 or 0.9.0 I get this nasty errorCode:
configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!
Thanks for the help.

As far as I remember 'Includes' are header files. I would check this now, but I'm having to work at an XP machine - pity poor me! Are you trying to compile from source? That's often when that message occurs.
There may be a directory or two on your system called /includes - don't take my word for it, try searching :o
I would suggest using the package manager instead of compiling from scratch. If you are a hard-boiled 'compile from source nutter', then you'll need to include the right path to the header files.
You may wonder what header files are? I don't write code, but they end in 'filename.h' and are often part of C or C++ source.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso

Hi Kindle, I just installed mandrake, and I am having the same problem when I try to install Kopete...I was wondering if/how you were able to solve the problem.

Most likely he had an unresolved dependancy. I think that's when that error is most likely to occur.
Sometimes 'development versions' of various libraries are needed to install a package. The trick is to find out which ones.
Edit: I suggest using urpmi to install Kopete. Don't try to install from source.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso
