Hello, thank you for the hint, I had no idea I could check mkmf.log. At
first, mkmf could not find Xlib.h (because XFree-devel was not
installed). Next, Suse apparently ships both the 32 and 64 bit versions
of libX11.so but forgets to point the linker to the 64 bit libs. After
manually fixing this, everything works ok.
Greetings,
Geert.

Show the mkmf.log file at first.
