E: Couldn't find package libncurses5-dev
so I downloaded it from http://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/ncurses/
unzipeed it to /usr/src/linux-188.8.131.52
now when I am trying to use make menuconfig I am receiving following error
death:/usr/src/linux-184.108.40.206# make menuconfig
*** Unable to find the ncurses libraries or the
*** required header files.
*** 'make menuconfig' requires the ncurses libraries.
*** Install ncurses (ncurses-devel) and try again.
make: *** [scripts/kconfig/dochecklxdialog] Error 1
make: *** [menuconfig] Error 2
Please help me to resolve this error and when I am trying to do the same in rhel5 I am able to use it
Thanks and regards
