The Ncurses package provides character and terminal handling libraries, including panels and menus.
Installed programs: captoinfo (link to tic), clear, infocmp, infotocap (link to tic), reset (link to tset), tack, tic, toe, tput and tset
Installed libraries: libcurses.[a,so] (link to libncurses.[a,so]), libform.[a,so], libmenu.[a,so], libncurses++.a, libncurses.[a,so], libpanel.[a,so]
Ncurses depends on: Bash, Binutils, Coreutils, Diffutils, Gawk, GCC, Glibc, Grep, Make, Sed.
Fix two minor things:
patch -Np1 -i ../ncurses-5.3-etip-2.patch patch -Np1 -i ../ncurses-5.3-vsscanf.patch
The first patch corrects the etip.h header file, and the second patch prevents some compiler warnings being issued on the use of deprecated headers.
Now prepare Ncurses for compilation:
./configure --prefix=/tools --with-shared \ --without-debug --without-ada --enable-overwrite
The meaning of the configure options:
--without-ada: This tells Ncurses not to build its Ada bindings, even if an Ada compiler is installed on the host. This must be done because once we enter the chroot environment, Ada will no longer be available.
--enable-overwrite: This tells Ncurses to install its header files into /tools/include instead of /tools/include/ncurses to ensure that other packages can find the Ncurses headers successfully.
Compile the programs and libraries:
Then install them and their documentation:
