Description Frederic Jacquet 2000-04-02 07:42:18 UTC
The current distribution only provide libncurses3 and 5.

A LOT of the package on my computer use libncurses 4 even tetex1.0.7 given
in the current distribution !

Is not it possible to add a symbolic link libncurses4 -> libncurses5 (with
the correct extension as I am not an C programmation expert)

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-04-03 15:30:59 UTC
Adding symlinks in the library dirs is possible, but it's not
a good idea as a matter of standard practice, as it leads
to problems (and dangling symlinks) on install/uninstall.
