HI

After trying to install rdesktop in Fedora 18, I got the following error:

ERROR: Could not find X Window System headers/libraries.
Probably you need to install the libX11-devel package.
To specify paths manually, use the options --x-includes and --x-libraries.

Any ideas about how to install those libraries?

Regards.

I have tried that command but I got a message that says:
There is no package libXll-devel

Is there any way to download it?

UM...

That should probably be

libX11-devel

with two number 1 (ones), not

libXll-devel

with two letter l (ells).

It looks like comfortjeanius mistyped it and you cut and pasted it.

yum install libX11-devel
