libtinfo.so.5 requirement for GnuGo?
 
@willysr (or anyone else who knows the answer): I went to Willy's SlackHacks repository to copy the GnuGo SlackBuild. After I compiled the program and tried to execute it,however, I had two dependencies crop up. The one I took care of with a simple soft link. However, the second one has proven to be tricky. The command

Code:

ldd $(which gnugo) | grep "not found"
revealed this:

Code:

libtinfo.so.5 => not found
I cannot come up with a package that contains this library, no matter how much I Google for it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Matt

After rephrasing my Google search, I found the answer here: http://forums.opensuse.org/english/get-technical-help-here/64-bit/446927-missing-library-libtinfo-so-5-a.html

Thanks in advance for the help.

It looks like you are running the program on another computer than the one where you compiled it.
You compiled it on an ARM host? Or on a machine which used my Slackware bootstrap scripts previously to build a ncurses package with libtinfo.so separated from libncurses.so?

Greetings Eric.

I compiled GnuGo on the same machine I am running it on (x86_64). However, I found that the information required in libtinfo.so.5 was contained in libncurses.so.5 in /lib64. Symlinking them solved the problem for me.

cd /lib64
ln -s libncurses.so.5 libtinfo.so.5

I am now running Kigo, the KDE version of Go.

Thanks.
