Description Myk Taylor 2005-03-09 10:44:54 UTC
Several binaries in /bin (csh, dir, ls, more, nano, pstree, pstree.x11, rnano, tcsh, and vdir) are linked with /lib/libncurses, which in turn is linked with /usr/lib/gpm.

Since the binaries in /bin link to /usr/lib/libgpm, though, they are unavailable in single user mode and in boot scripts before /usr is mounted.

It seems that libgpm (sys-libs/gpm) should be moved to /lib.
