patch to fix canvas error
This patch fixes the issue. I've also got a src.rpm if you are interested..
Weirdly enough, I haven't been able to reproduce it. Neither have I found a bug on the upstream tracker. I'm filing this upstream.
I'm on the same version 0.8.7, but on F14.
Thank you for filing the report and providing a patch. We'll probably push an update soon to fix it.
Thats because the bug occurs with Fedora 15, which uses :
whereas, F14 uses 5.7-9.20100703
The patch fixes the issue for Fedora15's ncurses.
As it stands, rtorrent is broken on F15 and is fixed (fwics) with this patch. I'd imagine it won't be long before this bug gets re-opened by someone else wanting to use rtorrent to be honest.
I'm not sure why this was closed -- reopening.
Imported the patch to rawhide and kicked off a build: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=2887948
Unfortunately, I can't seem to figure out how to pull the patch down to F-15 (and build that) right now (and I'm a little spare on time). Ankur, want to do that? Or I can take a stab at it later.
