Comment 1 Dee-Ann LeBlanc 2002-11-22 07:22:40 UTC
When I try make menuconfig, it tells me I need the ncurses libraries, but I've
already got ncurses-devel-5-2-28 and even ncurses-c++-devel-5.2.28 installed.
I'm not sure if this should be a separate bug or not, but in case it's all
linked I'm putting it here.

I'm not seeing this on beta2. make {old,x,menu,}config all work for me on an athlon


Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2003-02-19 16:22:00 UTC
If the bug is reproduceable, please attach tkparse.i (see -save-temps gcc option)
which you can reproduce it on. Otherwise it is likely a hardware problem.
