Hi folks,

Not sure what the best way of getting this first into OE and then into OZ is, but...

In order to use the micro-emacs app (and maybe other stuff), you'll need an /etc/terminfo directory with some terminfo files. I've tar'ed up the directory from my OZ 3.3.6p1 image here:

terminfo.tar.gz

Can you install ncurses-terminfo package and check does it helps?
jh
Yep, that works... I should have seen that package, duh. I"ll modify my micro-emacs.oe and submit a patch to add that to DEPENDS.

Thanks!

Hi,

On an SL5500, with a fresh flash of opie 3.5.3, it seems that installing
ncurses-terminfo works OK, but it hangs during the ipkg-link add. I
tried the entire procedure twice, with the exact same results.

I was following the steps exactly as (well) documented here:

http://www.minstrel.org.uk/papers/zaurus/

I control-C'ed out of the hang, but I'm not sure why this happens, and
would like to be able understand what is going on. I manually linked the
terminfo directory to point to ram where I have installed things, but I'm
not sure this is a valid workaround. I notice funny characters in kismet
on the corner of panels. Maybe this is normal, or maybe my terminfo
is broken.

Anyone know why the ipkg-link fails on ncurses-terminfo?
