Issue of "Unable to find the Ncurses libraries."
I try to compile uClinux in CentOS-5 platform.

I follow
instruction to compile it and in the step5:
Distribution Configuration
We need to configure compilation options for kernel and user applications.
[root@hyoklinux uClinux-dist]# make menuconfig
At the first Main Menu, Select the “Vendor/Product Selection”.
And Select “GDB” for the “Vendor”, and “ARMulator” for the “GDB Products” like :
I can not finish the step and it tell me:

>> Unable to find the Ncurses libraries.
>> You must have Ncurses installed in order
>> to use 'make menuconfig'

I install Ncurses RPM, system told me it is installed already.
I try to install Ncurses library, but so far I do not know where to get it. (BTW, I get one file, called as libncurses5-5.2-1.tar.bz2, which is 181KBytes, but uncompress to cgwxxxx.dll, I think it maybe works for windows, it does not work even I install it to the system).

I need your help, please.

You will also need to install ncurses-dev or ncurses-devel to compile packages that use ncurses.

And I would suggest you use the package manager to ensure things go smoothly - under the "Applications" menu -> "Add/Remove Software", then use the Search tab.
