Re: Compilation Errors: Arch Linux: v1.14
Sorry for the delay, been a bit busy lately.
That's okay; I can forgive a key developer of a major Linux distribution for being a bit busy :-).
That was actually a fix for a previous commit that switched to use
ncursesw. It was supposed to be temporary, but as it works in Debian,
there's been no hurry to fix it. I've committed a proper fix now:
Thanks for fixing the problem; I look forward to testing it in the next stable release of dpkg.
The ‘cursesw.h’ file is a different one than ‘ncursesw/curses.h’, or
‘curses.h’. So either apply the above patch or replace the include
with just ‘<curses.h>’.
I can confirm that modifying my attempted workaround to include "curses.h" allows dpkg v1.14.25 to build correctly on Arch Linux.
