Description Pekka Savola 1999-11-12 02:16:32 EST
I upgraded to ncurses-5.0-1 and every curses-program stopped
working complaining missing shared libraries.

Adding symlinks for old ncurses versions in /usr/lib by hand fixed the

rpm -V ncurses
missing    /usr/lib/libform.so.4
missing    /usr/lib/libmenu.so.4
....L...   /usr/lib/libncurses.so.4
missing    /usr/lib/libpanel.so.4
