Recently i've tried to install a IRC Bouncer, psyBNC-2.3-3.i386.rpm to be exact.
And this is what i got:
error: Failed dependencies:
libtinfo.so.5 is needed by psyBNC-2.3-3
It wouldn't be such a big deal... if i could find this lib......
Does any of you know where to get it?
From what i can gather, you will need to compile ncurses from source (RPM *Wont Work*), ensuring you ./configure with "--with-termlib".
Alternativly, download the the source pyscbnc, do a ./configure if necessary, then open the make file and replace all instances of libtinfo with libncurses. The first suggestion is proberly the easier of the two.
I ran into the libtinfo.so.5 problem with other software, and got around it by creating a symlink:
ln -s libncurses.so.5 libtinfo.so.5
There's no guarantee that this will work for all software, but it's worth a try.
