Bug#94756: libncurses5-dev (required for 'make menuconfig') is on disc 3

Package: cdimage.debian.org
Version: N/A; reported 2001-04-21
Severity: important

When installing from a CD-ROM, Debian has made a good effort to put most-used
packages on disc 1, less-used packages on disc 2, and rarely-used packages on
disc 3.

The package libncurses5-dev, required for 'make menuconfig' of a new kernel,
is on disc 3.  This is a serious inconvenience for new installs without a
working network (to download it directly) or X (to run 'make xconfig').
