Problem to install spice3, ncurses (libtinfo.so.5) is requried


I have problem to install "spice3" software.
The "libinfo.so.5" is required but while installing it through ncurses-lib, the ncurses itself not installing.
here is the process i did:-
[root@localhost Desktop]# rpm -ivh spice-3f5sfix-2.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libtinfo.so.5 is needed by spice-3f5sfix-2.i386
[root@localhost Desktop]#
## to install libtinfo the ncurses-libs are required which must be lower version of the ncurses installed in system
## but no lower version ncurses are available . lower than 5.6-13 Otherwise it will conflicts
## so new version of ncurses package si requred

[root@localhost Desktop]# rpm -ivh ncurses-libs-5.9-2.20110716.fc16.i686.rpm

spice-3f5sfix-2.i386.rpm : That's a 9 year old Redhat 8? package.

# yum install ngspice ( ng means 'new generation'.)

ngspice is in the EPEL repo https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL
