    I just installed Mandriva Linux on my laptop. I accedentally erased Windows; oh well. Windows sucks anyway. I am trying to compile the source code of id Software's Doom (with some modifications, of course ), and I am missing some files including "Xlib.h" (they all start with the leter "X", so I'm assuming they're related)/ Does anyone know what RPM package I need to get to sucessfully compile Doom (I"m using GCC)?

    I don't know the exact name of the package, but it will probably be something like x-dev or xdev or xlib-dev or something like that. coopstah is correct: you're looking for the X API headers.

    On my F7 system Xlib.h is in the libX11-devel package.
