Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 112169
sysctl in procps-2.0.17-6 depends on /usr/lib/libncurses.so.5
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:00:12 EDT
Sysctl fails for me upon system startup because it is trying to use
/usr/lib/libncurses.so.5, which doesn't exist yet since /usr hasn't
Either sysctl can't use curses, or the curses shared library needs to
move to /lib, or sysctl needs to link against the static curses library.
Ditto for libgpm.
I confirm this bug.

notting, what is your opinion on this?
sysctl has no gui/tui, unless it's changed. Why is it linked against
Right. The curses addition seems to be in the selinux patch:
+sysctl: % : %.o
+ $(strip $(CC) $(LDFLAGS) -o $@ $< $(LIB_TGT) $(LIBCURSES)
This seems like a mistake in the patch.
Removed the link from the SELinux patch in procps-2.0.17-7
