Steps to Reproduce:

Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2003-03-13 11:57:04 UTC
this is ncurses

Comment 2 Aaron McSorley 2003-03-13 15:49:49 UTC

Comment 3 Thomas E. Dickey 2003-05-18 00:39:04 UTC
use libncursesw.
try reading the installation instructions for ncurses.

Comment 4 Eido Inoue 2003-08-01 18:27:40 UTC
most recent builds have ncursesw. whether a package uses it or not is on a pkg
by pkg basis.

Comment 5 Thomas E. Dickey 2003-08-01 19:19:40 UTC
tsk, tsk: Redhat's copy of dialog is about a year old.  If that were updated,
there would be enough excuse to close this.  (The configure changes to use
ncursesw for dialog are from March of this year).
