Subject:missing tgetent in RedHat
View as plain text  
configure script fails because it can't find function tgetent (in ncurses,
curses or termcap). My home system, using somewhat older libraries, has
tgetenv in libncurses.1.9.9e. OTOH, libncurses-4.2 don't have it.
Just try to build on the wrong combination of RedHat 5.1 and 6.0.

PC with Linux; RedHat somewhere between 5.1 and 6.0 (upgrade was a bit
disorganized and mysql was one of the things that stopped working,
but now it seems everything except mysql is back to normal).
