How to install x11vnc on Oracle Enterprise Linux

By brianvu ·
Hi,
Thanks Jack for the post. This is exactly what I need to have. However, there was a problem with installation of the package on my 32-bit Oracle Enterprise Linux with the configure command as following. Please advise. Thanks
...
checking thenonexistentheader.h usability... no
checking thenonexistentheader.h presence... no
checking for thenonexistentheader.h... no
checking for X... no
checking for XGetImage in -lX11... no

configure: error:
==========================================================================
*** A working X window system build environment is required to build ***
x11vnc. Make sure any required X development packages are installed.
If they are installed in non-standard locations, one can use the
--x-includes=DIR and --x-libraries=DIR configure options or set the
CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS environment variables to indicate where the X
window system header files and libraries may be found. On 64+32 bit
machines you may need to point to lib64 or lib32 directories to pick up
the correct word size.

If you want to build x11vnc without X support (e.g. for -rawfb use only
or for native Mac OS X), specify the --without-x configure option.

then it even offers a solution to yet another possible cause of the error:

--x-includes=DIR and --x-libraries=DIR configure options or set the
CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS environment variables to indicate where the X

reading the messages that the build tools are giving you is always a good idea to problem solve.
