Description Jonathan Kamens 2004-02-29 10:14:46 EST
prelink complains that /usr/lib/libgpm.so.1.19.0 and
/usr/lib/libncurses.so.5.4 have a dependency cycle.  Indeed, libgpm
depends on libncurses and libncurses depends on libgpm.  I have
ncurses-5.4-4 and gpm-1.20.1-43.  Is this dependency cycle OK?

libgpm shouldn't depend on ncurses (this bug comes & goes -
a chunk of ncurses is linked with the gpm library for some
application which I've never seen identified).
