Hi,

I'm trying to compile Erlang R13B04 on IBM P550 with 6 processors p6, with
RHE for ppc and getting this error when running ./configure.


checking whether the child waiter thread should be enabled... no
checking for kstat_open in -lkstat... no
checking for tgetent in -lncurses... no
checking for tgetent in -lcurses... no
checking for tgetent in -ltermcap... no
checking for tgetent in -ltermlib... no
*configure: error: No curses library functions found*
*configure: error: /bin/sh '/root/downloads/otp_src_R13B04/erts/configure'
failed for erts*


But Ncourses are installed.

[otp_src_R13B04]# yum install ncurses
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
Setting up Install Process
*Package ncurses-5.5-24.20060715.ppc64 already installed and latest version*
*Package ncurses-5.5-24.20060715.ppc already installed and latest version*
Nothing to do

Anybody can help me ? To compile Erlang I need other version of ncourses,
which ?

Regards.
