Description Pekka Savola 1999-11-12 07:16:32 UTC
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/
missing    /usr/lib/
....L...   /usr/lib/
missing    /usr/lib/

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 1999-11-12 17:59:59 UTC
