I am pretty much new to Linux. I am trying to install tint2 on CentOS. When I try to install using the command yum install tint2, it gave following error

checking for X11... configure: error: Package requirements (x11 xcomposite xdamage xinerama xrender xrandr) were not met:

No package 'xcomposite' found
No package 'xdamage' found
No package 'xinerama' found
No package 'xrandr' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables X11_CFLAGS
and X11_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.`

When I try to install those packages which I belive should be done using

$>yum install xinerama
Failed to set locale, defaulting to C
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: mirrors.lga7.us.voxel.net
 * extras: mirror.rackspace.com
 * updates: mirror.atlanticmetro.net
Setting up Install Process
No package xinerama available.
Nothing to do

I am bit unclear here. How can I change the yum settings to look for x* packages at the different repository where packages are available?

What does it mean when it says

"Alternatively, you may set the environment variables X11_CFLAGS
and X11_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.

    do you have X11 installed? you can try yum search X11. that will give you all the packages that mention X11 in their description (its probably going to be a lot consider piping the output to less)

You can set Yum to phrase alternative repo's by downloading & installing the .rpm file of the repo. Proper instructions can be found in EPEL repo installation

Search for other repository which includes xinerama. Download and Install that repository with rpm new. The repo will be created in /etc/yum.repos.d

and run yum install xinerama
