Comment 1 Knut J BJuland 2005-11-12 03:33:28 EST
I have installed xorg-x11-devel, I am able to compile xine-lib cvs by using
-I/usr/X11R6/include/X11/extensions/Xext.h instead off -lXext and disabling
Imagemagic. I have alos issued /sbin/ldconfig -v /usr/X11R6/lib as root.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2005-11-13 01:42:18 EST
libXext is provided in xorg-x11-libs, and the .so symlink is provided in the
xorg-x11-devel package, as they always have been.  This has not changed in

You should consult with the Xine developers for the problem you are
experiencing, as this is not a bug in X.

Just as a heads up however, you should not hard code where the X libraries
and include files are, because they are not in that location in X11R7, which
is what Fedora Core 5 will be switching to very soon.

Setting status to "NOTABUG".
