Unknown package 'libncurses5-dev' ...

Hello List;

In order to try and fix the problem in my previous post, I attempted to install ‘libncurses5-dev’.
Which I believe is the package I need. However I continue to get the "Unknown package ‘libncurses5-dev’ " error.

Even though I did an “opkg update.”. An “opkg list” command shows only the new 'libncurses5" library.

Is there another repository for Beagle that I can link to ??

Thanks …

Thanks Antoine;

I am indeed using Angstrom v2012.05 - Kernel 3.2.18

As it turns out the ncurses-dev package was in fact installed on my system.

So now I am back to my original problem/error message.

When I attempted to “make” I got the following:


gcc -lbluetooth -lncurses -pthread dev_class.c namelist.c clone.c bdaddr.c oui.c -o clone

/usr/lib/gcc/arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/4.5.4/…/…/…/…/arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/bin/ld: /lib/libncurses.so.5: undefined reference to symbol ‘stdscr’

/usr/lib/gcc/arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/4.5.4/…/…/…/…/arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/bin/ld: note: ‘stdscr’ is defined in DSO /usr/lib/gcc/arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/4.5.4/…/…/…/libtinfo.so so try adding it to the linker command line

/usr/lib/gcc/arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/4.5.4/…/…/…/libtinfo.so: could not read symbols: Invalid operation

Do you or anyone else know how to add this path (?) to the linker command line ??

All I have ever done is use “Make” …

Thanks …
