Thread: missing Xlib.h and several others

    missing Xlib.h and several others

    Howdy everybody!

    I see that I am missing some libraries that should have been installed with my XFree86 developer. Specifially, Xlib.h, Xutil.h, keysym.h, extensions/XShm.h. I've tried downloading XFree86-devel but it says it won't install since I'm missing XFree-libs, but I have a new version of this exact thing.

    I'm on a Redhad 9 Workstation.

    Thanks for your help everybody!

    Try running:

    rpm -q -a | grep XFree

    Then look at what packages dealing with XFree86 are installed. If XFree-libs is indeed installed, then you can tell rpm to force the install of XFree86-devel, but if it's not registered in the RPM database as installed, then it's not as far as RPM is concerned...

    Hope this helps

    How do I force install XFree-devel?

    rpm -i --force some.rpm

    rpm -U --force some.rpm

    Whichever install option you use ( -i or -U or whatever ) use --force after it to force the install.
