Please report this upstream and link back here.
Comment 3 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-10-28 20:10:13 UTC
dev-util/cmake-2.8.12 gets it right.

Still doesn't work with 2.8.12
Comment 5 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-10-29 02:44:24 UTC
I did get a magical result with ld.bfd just now, but now I tried with and it failed nicely again.

I wrote the attached patch which allows it to build on my machine with
sys-libs/ncurses-5.9-r3 with the tinfo USE flag.  I haven't reported it
upstream yet.

Comment 8 Justin Lecher (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2014-03-23 10:19:08 UTC
Any progress here?
Comment 9 Michael Palimaka (kensington) gentoo-dev 2014-03-23 14:03:00 UTC
It would be nice to ask upstream first
Comment 10 piotr5 2014-03-31 00:03:59 UTC
does the patch also work with cmake-
is it actually ok to edit ebuild files in /usr/portage?
as far as I could see, this bug hasn't been reported upstream at all.
no other distro ever encountered that problem?
Comment 11 Quentin Minster 2014-04-03 09:15:45 UTC
Patch from Mark works great with cmake-

piotr: You should rather copy the ebuild to a local overlay (say /usr/local/portage) and edit it there. Ebuilds in /usr/portage tend to get overwritten on syncs. Don't forget to add your local overlay to PORTDIR_OVERLAY in your make.conf.
Comment 12 Johannes Huber gentoo-dev 2014-04-03 10:37:16 UTC
@Rolf Is the attached patch upstreamable or is it maybe already fixed?

> @Rolf Is the attached patch upstreamable or is it maybe already fixed?

I'm still hitting that with dev-util/cmake- 

Is there a particular reason it is not included? Without it all packages that are using cmake to link ncurses are also broken.

Comment 15 Rolf Eike Beer archtester 2014-04-13 08:09:28 UTC
Can someone please provide me with the exact details on how to reproduce this? I have nightly dashboard builds for CMake running on both HPPA and Sparc and have never seen this.
Comment 16 piotr5 2014-04-29 21:49:15 UTC
I too get

/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/4.7.3/../../../../x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: CMakeFiles/ccmake.dir/CursesDialog/ccmake.cxx.o: undefined reference to symbol 'cbreak'
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/4.7.3/../../../../x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: note: 'cbreak' is defined in DSO /lib64/ so try adding it to the linker command line
/lib64/ could not read symbols: Invalid operation

to reproduce you'd need to build ncurses with USE=tinfo before building cmake, and to fix you need to apply above patch and alter the ebuild to use it. any more obstacles for this bug to get fixed?

(sadly portage is broken in that patches in /etc/portage/patches don't get applied. seems the reason is explained by patch.out containing
PWD: /usr/lib64/portage/pym
which isn't a good PWDirectory for applying patches...)
Comment 17 Rolf Eike Beer archtester 2014-04-30 15:22:26 UTC
Ok, I'm now rebuilding ncurses with this flag. Let's see what the dashboard runs comes up with.

can I get a proper git patch against current CMake master, please? I would then push it upstream.
Comment 19 Rolf Eike Beer archtester 2014-05-06 19:09:45 UTC;a=commitdiff;h=773286e0141720712d514ff18365c49e69c93087

This may even hit 3.0-rc5.
Comment 20 Johannes Huber gentoo-dev 2014-05-06 19:22:23 UTC
Thanks Rolf, will backport it to the tree after testing.
