Re: Configure Problem
I don't have Corel (because I prefer pure Debian) so I can only give you
generic help. When you attempt to compile something and there is a
complaint that includes cannot be found, it usually means you should install
the "dev" equivalent of some of your library packages. For example on
Debian (but I am not sure about Corel) you need the xlib6g library package
in order to run most X applications. But to *compile* an application that
uses that library you also need to install the xlib6g-dev package (which
contains, for example, all the header files required to compile your
programme for that particular library).
So I would check all libraries having to do with X and make sure you have
installed all the appropriate "dev" versions of those libraries. After
that, the configure should easily find the required includes by itself
and should not require any additional information from you.
Hope this helps.
