Comment 1 sdelamora 1998-11-17 18:19:59 UTC
The failed package came from

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1998-11-18 12:09:59 UTC
What version of ncurses were you running previously?
Also, what sort of file is /usr/share/terminfo/a/avatar -
normal file, link, or directory?

Comment 3 David Lawrence 1998-11-19 13:37:59 UTC
I was able to upgrade a 5.1 system which contained ncurses-4.2-6 with
no difficulty to ncurses-4.2-10. Did you download the new ncurses or
did you get it off the cd?
