hi there. :)

i just wanted to ask how i could install/ use ncurses on knoppix (3.8 ) ? i need graphics for a machine project, and the ncurses library was specified. is it possible to use ncurses through knoppix, even if it's just running from CD?

i've already read some commands, but they have diiferent steps, and i'm not sure which one to use.

./configure --prefix=/usr --with-shared \

make install

chmod 755 /usr/lib/*.5.3

chmod 644 /usr/lib/libncurses++.a

mv /usr/lib/libncurses.so.5* /lib

ln -sf ../../lib/libncurses.so.5 /usr/lib/libncurses.so
ln -sf libncurses.so /usr/lib/libcurses.so

./configure --prefix=/tools --with-shared \
--without-debug --without-ada --enable-overwrite


make install

thanks. :D
