Description Gilbert E. Detillieux 1998-11-20 17:26:57 UTC
Starting with Red Hat 5.1, /usr/lib/terminfo has been moved
to /usr/share/terminfo, which breaks old libc5 programs that
use the old ncurses library, which still points to the old
path.  Fortunately, the fix is trivial:

ln -s ../share/terminfo /usr/lib/terminfo

Perhaps this symlink should be included in the libc5
package, or the path should be updated in the old ncurses
library included with libc5.
