Description Charles R. Anderson 2008-10-30 21:35:55 EDT
Description of problem:

/etc/profile.d/colorls.{sh,csh} uses the "tput" command.  "tput" is provided by ncurses.  ncurses isn't explicitly required by coreutils, and nothing else seems to be pulling it in on a default F10 install.  Hence, when new tcsh shells are spawned, I get an error:

tput: Command not found.

Other commands in ncurses are also pretty basic and should probably always be installed, like "clear" and "reset".

Thanks for report, I thought ncurses package was on exception list(no requires needed) as it was required by bash and coreutils at least (I guess even more packages). Will check that - and possibly add this Requires: ncurses.

Commited to CVS and built as coreutils-6.12-17.fc10 ... Tagging for F10-final requested at https://fedorahosted.org/rel-eng/ticket/956 - waiting for decision.
