Question about chapter 6.19 ncurses??


Hi i am kindoff confused about executing the command in the NOTES for binary-only application ... i was wondering do i have execute this following command :

make distclean
./configure --prefix=/usr --with-shared --without-normal \
--without-debug --without-cxx-binding
make sources libs
cp -av lib/lib*.so.5* /usr/lib

and then repeat the above steps required for Ncurses again???

Hi,

If you are building an (B)LFS system you don't have to do that step. I would go as far as to say that it is only needed if you are going to install a package (not from source!) that is going to use this.

Hope this helps.

The steps in the Notes box only installs extra libraries. There's no need to remove what has been installed, it won't do any harm.

BTW: You're welcome

Hope this helps.
