#9775 closed defect (fixed)

Ntp-utils should not depend on libncurses.

Reported by: jch@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Backfire 10.03
Keywords: Cc:


Ntp-utils contains a number of small utilities to manage an NTP server. Ntpq, in particular, is essential in order to see if ntpd is working.

The utilities can be built with or without support for readline. On OpenWRT, they are built without readline support, which is the right thing to do.

However, for reasons unknown to man or woman, the package still pulls in ncurses through a dependency. The dependency is useless, and I've just checked that after doing opkg remove --force-depends libncurses everything still works (on Backfire).

Please remove the spurious dependency.
