#10178 closed defect (duplicate)

package 'less' built against libncursesw; does not pull it as dependency

Reported by: mystica555 Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc: mystica@…


I installed the normal gnu-less because busybox-less is...less than useful to me. Upon installing only 1 singular package of 'less' attempts to run 'less' cause a libncursesw not found error.

root@DarwinAnimeRouter:/etc/config# opkg install less --force-overwrite
Installing less (436-1) to root...
Configuring less.
root@DarwinAnimeRouter:/etc/config# which less
root@DarwinAnimeRouter:/etc/config# diff --help |less
less: can't load library ''
root@DarwinAnimeRouter:/etc/config# opkg list |grep libncursesw
libncursesw - 5.7-5 - Terminal handling library (Unicode)
root@DarwinAnimeRouter:/etc/config# opkg install libncursesw
Installing libncursesw (5.7-5) to root...
Configuring libncursesw.
root@DarwinAnimeRouter:/etc/config# ldd `which less` => /usr/lib/ (0x2b1ae000) => /lib/ (0x2b1f2000) => /lib/ (0x2b214000) => /lib/ (0x2b196000)
