[SOLVED] ncurses-devel blocking me using make menuconfig
I have been running make menuconfig as root.. After the fact I found out that was not recommended. But when I tried to run make menuconfig I get an error.
$ usr/src/linux make menu config
*** Uable to find ncurses libraries or the
*** required header files
***make menu config requires the the ncurses libraries
***Install ncurses (ncurses-devel) and try again.
make:: *** [scripts/kconfig/dochecklxdidalog] Error 1
make:: *** [menuconfig' Error 2
I emerge ncurses-devel but package could not be found.
I did emerge ncurses and it installed. I googled and others had same problem but no solution.
