Description Jonathan Kamens 2003-12-15 12:55:54 EST
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
been mounted.
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.
Comment 2 Bernie Innocenti 2003-12-27 12:24:25 EST

notting, what is your opinion on this?
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2004-01-19 12:11:47 EST
sysctl has no gui/tui, unless it's changed. Why is it linked against
Comment 6 Alexander Larsson 2004-01-20 04:10:00 EST
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.
Comment 7 Daniel Walsh 2004-01-20 18:51:03 EST
Removed the link from the SELinux patch in procps-2.0.17-7
