Re: compiling error: xauth not found



Horacio,

	Maybe something went wrong on your system during or after the
install. But I do suggest you do your homework more thoroughly. Here is
what I get :

debian$pwd
/mnt/cdrom/dists/slink/main/binary-i386/x11

debian$dpkg -c xbase-clients_3.3.2.3a-11.deb  | less
