Trouble compiling kile

    I've tried found kile very easy and interesting to use and I've had no problem installing it from sources on a Mandrake 9.2 and Mandrake 10.0 Community but I'm having trouble compiling it (all versions 1.7.1, 1.6.3 and 1.6.2) on a Mandrake 10.1 official.

    Here's what I get with ./configure :
    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!

    I've tried installed the RPM proposed on the download pages but the application won't start.

    I think it happens because of the changing from XFree to Xorg and that it is just a path to indicate but I don't know how to correct that.

    Thank you for your answer,

      You have to install the X include files (typically these are in the X-development package). The same goes for Qt and KDE-devel.
