Hi all,
I am unable to install R on CentOS5 64 bit machine.

When I do ./configure
I get the message

"checking for X... no
configure: error: --with-x=yes (default) and X11 headers/libs are not available"

from doing a websearch it seems I need to install x11-xorg. But I could not find it when I did a yum install.

I did "yum list xorg-x11*" and following is what I get Could someone tell me which is the missing X11 package I need to install for CentOS5? Thanks a lot for any help.
Shantanu
