Ah, I see. Yes, I bumped into something similar earlier. Now I am getting some other error that I don't know how to handle.

checking for KDE... configure: error:
in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail.
So, check this please and use another prefix!
This happens when I am running configure to get Kaffeine installed. Any ideas of what I have to do? I am running KDE.

oh. I guess I am too used to w2k. Just grabb the latest and be happy.

My original reason for trying that kaffeine install, is to be able to handle DVD's among other things. Without the libdvdcss library, will I be?

How do you get libraries to stick in the system? So other installs can be aware of them? Sometimes it works fine, but other times not.
I have also tried installing the VideoLan player but it stumbles on a couple of dependencies, the first being libdvdcss. I downloaded and installed libdvdcss with configure, make and make install. But VLC is still asking for that library. Any idea of what I can be doing wrong?

I hope you can stand my very basic questions. But we all have to start somewhere.

Thanks for the help so far,
