Thread: problems with ncurses

    problems with ncurses

    I was in teh process of compiling the kernel and after make menuconfig I got:

    /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-slackware-linux/3.2.1/../../../../i386-slackware-linux/bin/ld: cannot open crt1.o: No such file or directory
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

    >> Unable to find the Ncurses libraries.
    >> You must have Ncurses installed in order
    >> to use 'make menuconfig'

    so, i download ncurses-5.3.tar.gz, extract it and do ./configure and the following (along with a few other lines) appears:

    checking for C compiler default output... configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables

    This was on a slackware-current almost fresh install (as in i'd edited inetd.conf, resolv.conf and created a dial up connection in kppp). I made sure that ncurses package was actually present in the directory which i installed slack from, and it was. So i take it somehow GCC or Ncurses has b0rked, and i was wondering if anyone could suggest a solution.

    Sorry for the long post

    reinstalled the package ncurses-5.2-5.tgz
    added /usr/lib and /usr/include to /etc/
    ran ldconfig

    still the same problem.
