Ok. 'rpm -i XFree86-devel-<version>.<arch>.rpm' should give you the
header files; fill in version and arch as appropriate.

Then you can't use Tkinter, either - it requires an X server for use

That doesn't really answer the question: if you don't have X, you
don't need Tkinter, either - not even if you use PIL.
