    Where is your server hosted? I have a RHE4 at and it is having this problem also. This problem does not happen on the CentOS 3.8 machine I have at midPhase.

    I had the same problem. It was because there was a strange symlink to a non-existant location:

    /usr/X11R6/lib -> /usr/X11R6/lib64

    I did this:
    cd /usr/X11R6
    mv lib lib.orig

    Then I reran the x11 install and it worked fine. Problem is, it doesn't solve the problem completely.

    Please see my other post about this issue here:

    Help! :)

    Here is what I did to resolve this issue on a RHEL4 64bit server...

    ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib-old /usr/X11R6/lib64

    Basically on this particular server there was no /usr/X11R6/lib64 directory in which /usr/X11R6/lib pointed to it as a symbolic link. However there was a /usr/X11R6/lib-old directory which contained all the lib files. By creating the symbolic link above resolved my issue.

    If you followed the instructions above by vikins then you will likely have to go back and undo it. This also resolved the issue I have been reading here in the forums about "undefined reference" errors.

    Note: If you dont have the xorg-x11 & xorg-x11-devel rpms installed then you will need these also.

    I hope this helps.
