Description of problem:
I've installed all four rpms that have "ncurses" in the name, yet I still get an
error message when I run make "menuconfig". The exact message is: /usr/bin/ld:
cannot find -lncurses
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: Get error message about missing ncurses library.
Expected Results: I expected "make menuconfig" to work.
I installed four different rpms from the 7.3 distro which have "ncurses"
anywhere in the filename. What am I missing? And why isn't this library
automatically installed? It's used in many programs.
There are only two ncurses packages-- the main package and the -devel
subpackage. I'm unable to reproduce your problem with a stock 7.3 install.
