Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-01-21 20:47:45 UTC
It's used in the ccmake command. Please let it use the system libform present in ncurses, if at all possible.

Patch to switch to external libform

Here's a patch to build ccmake (2.6.4) against external libform. 

Builds and links fine, and "ccmake --help" gives expected output, but no further functionality tests done so far.
Comment 2 Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2010-03-13 21:29:53 UTC
I've been using the patched cmake for half a month now on 2 amd64 and 1 x86 machine. No side effects noted during emerges. 

However, I have not tested the ncurses program itself manually.

Comment 3 Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2010-04-04 18:26:10 UTC
Please give the cmake-2.8.1 ebuild from the kde overlay a thorough testing. 

This should be fixed there, as well as another issue (bug 305945). 
Comment 4 Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2010-04-13 15:03:12 UTC
Fixed in cmake-2.8.1-r1.
