While compiling ParaView from the source files, I ran into the following error while running the ‘make’ command.
…libXi.so undefined reference to `_XGetRequest'
make: *** [bin/icetTests_mpi] Error 1
[ThirdParty/IceT/vtkicet/tests/CMakeFiles/ icetTests_mpi.dir/all] Error2
In my case, the X11 libraries were installed separately and were located in custom directory locations that differed from the default. I fixed this error by checking and correcting the paths for my X11 libraries and include directories within the ccmake configuration menu. The error was then fixed during the next ‘make.’
