I would have expected it to find the ncurses library. Do you have a
I did, but the symlink pointed at the wrong file. Probably an error
that occure while updating my distribution (SuSE).
Suggestions: ensure that you have libncurses, and (most importantly)
the libncurses.so symlink. If this is a RedHat system, you only get
the unversioned symlink when you install the corresponding -devel
package (i.e. ncurses-devel in this case).
Yup. Same for my SuSE-system. The ncurses-package was
installed. Installing the development-package did the trick.
Thanks a lot!
