    Hi all,

    I have Redhat 7.3 installed and i'm trying to install Lyx.
    I downloaded lyx-1.3.2.tar.gz e I launched ./configure
    but it return this error:

    ** Cannot find libforms or libxforms. Please check that the xforms
    library
    is correctly installed on your system.

    ** Cannot find forms.h. Please check that the forms library
    is correctly installed on your system.
    Then I downloaded xforms-1.0-1.i386.rpm and I installed it. I checked
    and I find libforms.so.1 and libforms.so.1.0
    in /usr/X11R6/lib/, but I didn't find forms.h.
    Then I relaunched ./configure but it return the same error message!!!

    You only installed the binaries and failed to install the header files.

    Install xforms-1.0-1-devel.i386.rpm

    You are also going to have to install TeX and possibly other dependencies.
    Read the text files in your lyx source tree.
