#9044 closed defect (fixed)

ncurses{w} doesn't install ncurses{w}5-config

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: developers
Priority: high Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: base system Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


ncurses (both libncurses and libncursesw) do not install ncurses{w}5-config. This leads to build failures in packages that rely on ncurses{w}5-config. For example, alsa-utils- fail to build due to that (however, alsa-utils-1.0.23 used to build fine, though it included /usr/include/ncurses in cross-compailation (using the host's ncurses-config), but it didn't cause configure to exit at 1.0.23 alsa-utils version).

The attached patch fixes the issue, thus also fixing compilation for packages like alsa-utils.

In case this patch gets accepted i kindly ask to backport it to backfire, because this problem is also relevant for backfire. If you guys could backport libncursesw, too, would be great :) Currently we have to maintain additional ncursesw package in backfire to have wide version of ncurses there -\
