Description Olivier Baudron 2000-11-30 21:14:30 EST
I updated ncurses to ncurses-5.2-2.
Now, when I start emacs I get a warning message:

emacs: Symbol `ospeed' has different size in shared object, consider
Comment 1 Olivier Baudron 2000-11-30 21:30:00 EST
Sorry, this is probably the upgrade to glibc-2.2-5 wich causes the problem, not
Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-12-01 11:25:30 EST
This would be an ncurses problem.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2000-12-01 11:47:37 EST
emacs is built against a slightly different ncurses version. It needs rebuilding.
Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-12-01 11:51:46 EST
ncurses should be compatible through 7.x, anything else is a bug (emacs was
rebuilt for other reasons anyway, but this is a bug in ncurses.
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2000-12-11 01:48:31 EST
No, emacs got built against the incompatible version. That's why it
needs/needed rebuilding.

In any case, it should be rebuilt by now.
Comment 6 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-12-11 14:12:17 EST
It is - including emacs-20.7-23, coming to Rawhide soonish (some earlier ones
are also rebuilt)
